Baby Shower Money Card Holder

 

P1060228

I created this card for a baby shower for my girlfriend Kim.  First I must warn you, the umbrella stamp set is retired and very hard to find.  I stumbled upon it last summer thinking, “Oh it’s cute, I might as well get it as it’s only a couple bucks.” This was at a former consultant’s online garage sale.  Flowers and the sentiment are from New Arrival

That’s not the interesting part of this card.  It’s the design. 

I took a 7 x 12” piece of cardstock and scored it at 4.5” & 9”  to make a money holder card.  I used narrow double sided tape to secure the flap at the top and bottom.

I used Clear Sparkles to give the effect of a rain shower.  They were also very handy in covering up a couple boo-boo’s I made with ink.  “A mistake is an opportunity to embellish!”  Right?

Have a great day!  Pull out an old stamp set and see what you can make!  Feel free to post your artwork on my CraftyLalia FB page!
