Money Card


Well, it's my nieces birthday today & she's 17 so doesn't really want a little girlie card.

I've had this sheet with the jeans picture on it for ages, it was a free download, but I'd never managed to find a use for it. I backed it onto some card & cut out the size I wanted for the front of the card, then I used a sharp craft knife to cut along the edge of the pocket, then I glued it to the front of a card blank (making sure to not glue too close to the cut area). Stamped greeting onto card cut using nestabilities & mounted onto another piece of card again cut with nestabilities, then put this onto the main card using foam pads. Finally put £10 in pocket.

I really hope she likes it!

That is very creative! I'm sure you neice appreciated an original card and not something from Halmark that a million other people received.

very nice! I thought you cut out a pocket from jeans and made a card, until I read the post.

I must find that free download. It's perfect for teenagers. I have so many birthdays coming up it would be perfect for.
