 Morning Everyone,

Back again and this time it is the start of a new challenge at As You Like It where we would like to see your favourite way to decorate a money wallet or gift card holder.

When we give money for birthdays it always goes in the birthday card (not through the post though) so if I do make a money wallet it is always at Christmas time when cards have already been sent and the wallet doesn't get opened until Christmas day.

I have made a pretty pink one here for one of the girls with a sheet from a First Edition 8"x8" pad.  I followed the basic instructions on a Youtube video and made a band to keep it closed with a Spellbinders poinsettia attached, which I have decorated with glitter and pearls.  The Merry Christmas is stamped in metallic silver.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

with a voucher for the lucky winner.

I would like to enter this into:

May Rudolph Days - Anything Christmas
Simon Says Weds - Anything Goes
Merry Little Christmas - Anything Christmas
Simon Says Monday - Not a Card

Thank you for taking the time to visit and have a good day.

  12. As soon as I saw your pretty gift wallet, I knew it was a design that called out for a 3D accent like you chose.

    I often make multi-layered images and dies and then hesitate to use them on cards that need mailed (due to rising postal costs).

    I only need a set number of hand-delivered cards so always have extra toppers or accents left over. I will be making money wallets and gift card holders and accenting them with my 3D accents!
    Thanks for taking part in the May Rudolph Days Challenge!
