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.

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.

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 :)
