Stampin'Up Joyous Celebrations..........
Hello my lovely crafting friends. I hope you've all had a good weekend. It was our Bromsgrove Crop on Saturday, we had Christmas songs playing all day, Libby organised some challenges and also a little gift so thanks, Libby, such a lovely thought.
Also, I did a card class, and as it was Christmas, I did a little extra and made a money holder which holds a chocolate and money.
Here's what I created for the class.
The money holder is using the SU Sizzix Scalloped Envelope die, I cut two out from kraft card and hinged them together using the flaps. The photo below shows you, where I glued the flaps, then the two that have been left flat are glued together , forming an hinged holder.
Once assembled, cover the front with patterned paper, leave the scalloped edge on the right hand side, upright, on this flap I added the sentiment, punching out with the SU Oval Punch. The one on the left, fold down over the front, covering some of the paper, and keep in place with a foam square.I coloured the white pearls with a red ProMarker for the holly berries.
Lastly, I added some seam binding all the way around, so you can tie it together and added the 'December 25th', punched out with the SU Scalloped Square.

Paper- SU Candlelight Christmas, SU Glimmer Card.
Pretties- SU Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, SU Scalloped Tulle Ribbon, SU Pearls.
