Elf Money card
I used a white card as my base card. I then covered 2/3 of the card with a free green swirl patterned paper from Free Digital Scrapbooking. I then covered the remainder with a 20 x 20 sheet of striped patterned paper (leaving plenty of spare paper around the edges to make the money pocket, see tutorial below).
For a more detailed tutorial please see my: Reindeer Money card
1. After covering the remainder of the card with the green swirl paper, I then cut 2 slits up to the card at the top and bottom of the spare paper around the edge to create 4 flaps. I also trimmed the spare paper at the side of the card to 8cm.
2. This is what it should look like on the reverse side.
3. Next I folded over the 2 small flaps at the top and bottom. I then glued the 2 smaller flaps to the card. I then folded over the 2 larger flaps. Lastly I glued the 2 larger flaps down (put glue on the patterned side).
I then decorated the pocket with a ribbon, bow and stamped sentiment.
I then coloured in my free Elf Digi in Photoshop, printed it on white card and trimmed it into a circle. I then matted it to a circle of green paper and glued it to the center left of my card. Lastly I attached 2 "Merry Christmas" ribbons to the top and bottom of the swirl paper on the left of my card.
I had so much fun creating this card and would like to thank the DT at Willow Sketchie Challenge and my Mum for a great challenge. Good luck to all that enter. :D
