Good morning! Let me ask you a question. How do feel about long cards? Every year we do the photo cards and every year I have a bunch of envelops leftover. I save those envelopes :) They are 8 1/4 x 4 1/4. Every once in awhile I will have a need for a card that will fit in one of these envelopes. I call them long cards, because, well, they're long. 8" x 4", that's pretty long compared to most of the cards I make.
My need for long cards this past weekend was to hold cash. Cash fits really well in a long card :)
Here's the front of my long card. I used October Afternoon papers and miscellany. I attached that tag with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher. I really resisted buying that thing, but you know what, I find myself reaching for it all the time! Rather than stamping or die cutting Happy Birthday, I just grabbed a pen and wrote it out myself. This card came together QUICK! No frills for my 12 year old nephew :)
Here's a close up of the tag, and those cute little staples :)
On the inside, I laid my money down and, with a pencil, placed a hash mark on each side of the bill. Then I used my Stampin' Up! Slit Punch to punch those slits. The bill fits right in between the two. I just had to remember to erase my hash marks :) I took a picture of the card with the money in it, but I didn't know if it was illegal to post something like that on the Internet? Is it? I would hate for the Blogger police to come after me! Haha!
Well, I hope you enjoy your Tuesday and thank you for stopping by today. I'll see you tomorrow!
