Birthday Money Envelopes
by Marybeth Lopez
Hello! Marybeth here this weekend sharing an easy card to make with Poppystamp's Stitched Envelope craft die. The sentiment is also from Poppystamps: Peony Bouquet stamps set.
I used white cardstock and then blended Distress Oxide ink . I used heavyweight 110 lb. cardstock. for the envelopes but next time I will use one not so heavy, because it won't be as bulky once the money is tucked in. No need for such heavyweight anyway. I found because of the oxide inks glue didn't adhere as well so I used very thin score tape. If you choose to just used colored paper no worry , you can use glue or tape.
I folded the money and used a bone folder to help make it flatter. You can fold it, in a way that shows the amount but I had random amounts for the photo so I didn't chose to show the amount.
I am not sure why the photo above is so faded and bright, on my phone and computer it's not. Sorry about that.
This card will most likely go to my grandson, born on Leap year. Since this is a leap year and he is 16, he gets one envelope filled with money for each real birthday. Sometimes he says this will be his 4th birthday :)
Thank you for the visit today and I hope you have a wonderful week filled with many blessing.
