The holder measures 3 1/4" x 6 1/2". I know you cannot really see the base card. I used a piece of retired card stock called Handsome Hunter. You know how it is. Colors retire and you have all this card stock left over. I figured why not use it. I added a layer of Basic Black and then one of Very Vanilla. I did emboss it with my big shot using an impression folder. I do not remember the name of it but it is not from SU!. A piece of Basic Black grosgrain ribbon is attached to the Vanilla for added color. Now for the embellishment.
I chose the word "Adventure" because I know every time we travel, it is always an adventure. I cut this out using my Cricut Expression first in Basic Black, then in Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, and Pear Pizzazz. I used only the leave from the Pear and the letters from the Tangerine and Daffodil. I snipped the letters apart so that I could alternate the color. Finally using my handy dandy Stickles glitter glue, I added dots to the letters and and lines to the leaves. It gave just enough sparkle to make me happy. (By the way, if you love glitter glue like I do, you will be very happy when the holiday mini catalog comes out!!!)
This is the inside of the money holder. I stamped the "congratulations" from the Curly Cute stamp set in Handsome Hunter. (Yes I still have the ink pad too.) I edged the piece of Vanilla with the same ink and then snipped the ends with my 1 1/4" square punch. You can see the certificate tucked inside the holder. Since I designed it, I just made sure it was the perfect size.
I truly hope the winners of this prize enjoy the RV experience as much as we do. I hope to be able to off into the sunset again soon. I love to go.
Hope you enjoyed seeing the money holder today. Thanks so much for stopping by and I will be back tomorrow!!
