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!

    LOVE IT!!!!!!!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
