Today's idea started with the money holder my upline, Jenifer Lange, made for her poor (aren't they all?) college student child...
She got the idea for the front of her money holder from Stamp with Heather and if you don't already subscribe to this blog, you MUST go right now and check out this blog thoroughly!
I wasn't giving money to my own poor college student for Halloween but I will be sometime - she occasionally reads my blog so I won't say when - let's leave it as the weather will be cooler than it is right now and it will probably involve a stocking...
I took the BOO sweet treat money holder idea and turned it into....Cold Cash!
I used two REALLY cute items from the mini catalog for this money holder, Snow Buddies, which is a hostess set and Sweet Treat Cups.
If you pull the "ca$h" tab you can access the change without tearing up the card. And I just threw one of our snowflake punch pieces in with the money.
But the real "cold cash" will be in the pocket on the inside - amount and sentiment withheld since Mom wants to have a few surprises during the holidays. The stamps for "ca$h" are retired - Simple Serif Alphabet & Numbers. If you have decent handwriting you could easily just do this part by hand.
I didn't worry about size with this money holder since I didn't need an envelope - it won't need to be mailed - and you aren't suppose to mail cash anyway.
Did you notice that all punches used in the creation of this card were used as intended and not forced into some weird or silly creature? You didn't think I could be this normal did you?
