Money holder card

This is Ian, a Greeting Farm stamp in a set called Dress Me. He has lots of different outfits to wear and so does Anya (his sister, or girlfriend?!??!! I don't know the story of those two!!!) LOL Very cute though! The Aunts and Uncles are all giving my 15 year old nephew some money for his birthday, so I made a money holder card.
Whoa - sorry about the blurriness.....so strange!! I was trying out a new spot to take pictures this morning but it didn't seem to help! I blocked out the names on the card, just in case!!! The paper sticking out is supposed to represent $$$ cuz I didn't have any in my wallet!! LOL (thank God for Debit cards!!!)
I couldn't find a template for a card like this (I KNOW they are out there though!) so I had to concoct my own!!!! The dimensions for my card are 8.25 x 8, scored at 2.75, 3 and 6. I folded the one flap over and attached it with a small piece of Velcro. The DP is 7.75 x 2.25 and 7.75 x 2.5 (if desired - you could stamp right on the cardstock if you wanted!) That was it...very simple!!!
Have a great day!

You did really good for winging it! Does it really matter to a 15 yr. old what money comes in? As long as it's in his hand!!!!

Hugs,
