Money Card Holder


Hey Everyone,
My oldest niece and nephews want cash this year for Christmas. They are growing up too fast. It was only 14 years ago that my niece was a flower girl at my wedding and now she's learning how to drive.
Today's Gypsy Spot challenge was to create something with a snowman and/or snowflake. Well since I'm giving cash this year, I thought this challenge was a perfect time to make money card holders.

I love using UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) on my projects and not too long ago I found a great video tutorial at apieceofcraftdotcom on how to add glitter to UTEE. Her technique was on Prima flowers, but you can certainly do this on anything you cut out from your Cricut.

I'm sure you all need a video fix, so here you go.....


Thanks for watching and I hope to be back later this week with a Wild Card Series video.

Hugs,

    You have inspired me to get on with the gift card holders I need to make. I have been making some calendars with the Designer Calendar cart and I was getting "crafted out".

    Can you tell me what kind of corner rounder you used? I need to get a new one and that looked like it works well.
    Thanks for sharing.

  19. Love your card. I think I have seen the UTEE process before, but I believe the product was melted and poured. I like this method better.
    Thank you

  29. I love this project! My dad is so hard to shop for. I do handmade for Christmas, but not his birthday, and this would be a GREAT way to dress up a gift of that nature!

    I just adore your blog! You are such an inspiration to me! Watching creative and talented people like you has inspired me to blog, and to craft WAY more often. I use new techniques and am constantly inspired because of gals like you! Thanks for all you do!!!!
