A Money Challenge

We had quite the fun challenge for "Cards on Thursdays" at Bella Blvd today:
Create a money or gift card holder.

So here is what I came up with...I really had to find the out-of-the-box zone on this one LOL
Birthday Wishes Money Card
For this card I was inspired by the party hat shape on the Cute Cuts paper. 
To begin, I set out folding a bill into a triangle shape that best matched the size of the party hat. 

 Next, I cut slits into the background paper and inserted the bottom two points through them. 

 I attached the Cute Cuts hat to the background paper and then tied the folded money in place 
with a ribbon bow. The hippo cut-out was then added over the party hat motif with foam dots.  

 Supplies: Birthday Girl: Party Dress, Sugar Rush, Dancing Queen, Cute Cuts, Alpha+Bits Stickers; Button Market: Masculine Mix; Sophisticates: Miniatures Card Sentiments

 Sweet Birthday Gift Card Holder
My mom's birthday is coming up, so I crafted this card with her in mind! 
 She's very hard to buy for, so a gift card is always a good idea. I started out by using 
my die-cut circles to cut a 5" circle from a green paper, a 4" circle from a plain green cardstock 
and then a 3.25" circle from a red paper. I folded the largest circle in half and cut along the mark. 
Next, I machine-stitched around the bottom edge to form a pocket. 
The other two circles halves were layered on top and then embellished.

 Supplies:Christmas Wishes: Christmas Love; Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle Pickle Juice, Freestyle Cotton Candy; High Five Alphabet Stickers: Pink-Red; Flirty: Label Additions Stickers; Crochet Flowers: Poppy

Many, many more ideas found today at the Bella Blvd Blog:

I really loved this challenge and look forward to trying other types of 
money/gift card holders to my card designs in the future :)
Thanks for visiting!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
