Christmas Card Money Holders

Edited to Add: Please note the dimensions for these cards should measure no more than 6 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ when folded. I accidentally typed 3 1/2″ when I posted originally. I’m sorry for any confusion!

These cards are longer than the ones I usually make, and are meant to hold money or a check without having to fold the bill or check in half. For all of these projects, overall card size is 6 1/2″ x 3 1/4″, which correspond to Stampin Up’s Small Open-End Envelopes. Inside, I lined the card with whisper white or very vanilla card stock cut to 3″ x 6 1/4″. I also used the Slit Punch to make a little “lip” in the card to hold the bill or check, or even a gift card.


The first card was made from a 3 1/4″ x 12″ piece of close to cocoa card stock, scored at 5 1/2″. This will leave the back flap of the card 6 1/2″ long and the front flap an inch shorter. To make up the difference, I attached a strip of real red card stock that I scalloped with the Scallop Edge Punch.

Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon covers any seams. I wrapped the ribbon around the entire card front and glued the top piece to the bottom piece of ribbon with SNAIL. Then, I took a shorter piece and wrapped it around the ribbon, creating a loop that I secured with glue dots. Slide the seam side underneath the vertical ribbon strip and using the cropadile, punch a hole through all the layers of ribbon. Add a Fire Circle Rhinestone Brad and there you have it!

The card front is layered with real red textured card stock and Christmas Cocoa DSP. In the center, punched out a close to cocoa ornament using the Ornament Punch and applied a rub on from Merry & Bright Rub Ons. Some Silver Elastic Cord was tied in a bow around the neck of the ornament and then it was attached to the base with dimensionals.


Here is another long card made the same way described above. Base is real red textured card stock, with a kiwi kiss scalloped edge. Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon hides the seam.

I stamped the snowflake from Merry (retired) in Versamark and heat embossed it with White E.P. The ornament from Delightful Decorations was stamped in Kiwi Kiss ink on whisper white and punched out using the Ornament Punch. I added dazzling diamonds glitter to the center of the ornament and a Fire Circle Rhinestone Brad. Next, I tied Silver Elastic Cord to the ornament and wrapped it around the inside.

The sentiment is from Berry Christmas stamped in real red ink on whisper white that I punched out using the Word Window Punch layered on a kiwi kiss Modern Label Punch. Both the ornament and sentiment are popped up on dimensionals.


Using the same colors as above, I only used rub ons from Merry & Bright Rub Ons to decorate this card. The ornament is kiwi kiss card stock, punched with the Ornament Punch. I added a Fire Circle Rhinestone Brad and Silver Elastic Cord tied in a bow around the neck of the ornament, which is attatched to the base with dimensionals.


This might be my favorite one of the bunch! The base for this snowman card is cut to 6 1/2 x 6 1/2″, scored on one side at 3 1/4″ so the fold is on the top edge. Card base is textured Kiwi Kiss, layered with the Bulk Buy Holiday DSP that was part of the Inventory Clearance. I attached the DSP to the base and then using my 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, punched a hole through both layers of paper.

To get the scallop window, I took a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock and punched a 1 3/8″ circle. Then, I took the Scallop Circle Punch and centered it over the 1 3/8″ hole I just punched from the chocolate chip card stock. Punch it out and you have a scallop circle window! Glue the scallop circle window to the front of the card.

Inside, I lined the card with a 3″ x 6 1/4″ piece of whisper white card stock. Making small pencil marks, I drew where the window lined up with the inside of the card. Then, I stamped the snowman from Snow Buddies in Brown Stazon ink and colored him in with Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen. Around the base of the snowman, I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter (not shown).

Outside, I stamped the “Merry” sentiment from Merry (retired) in Brown Stazon ink in the lower left corner of the card.


Finally, I made a money holder card using the shimmery white paper from Taste of Textiles (retired). This is another top fold card, cut to 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″, scored at 3 1/4″ with the fold on top. I added a strip of textured chocolate chip card stock across the front and layered two snowflakes from Felt Flurries. In the center, I punched a hole using the cropadile and added a Fire Circle Rhinestone Brad, which I adhered using a large glue dot.

The sentiment, stamped along the bottom right corner, is from Christmas Greetings and is in real red ink. Inside, I stamped the corresponding sentiment from the same set (not shown).

Happy Halloween–Glittery Spider Webs

This card turned out so cute! And I’m normally not one to make Halloween cards, but I figured I’d give it a try this year. Base is Basic Black layered with Going Gray. The black spider web DSP is a retired Halloween DSP. I traced over the corner web with my MS Glue pen and sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

The spider was made from a 1 3/8″ Circle Punch of Basic Black card stock, with googly eyes and red circle nose. The legs are pieces of Silver Elastic Cord, that I pinched to make them bend slightly. The string he’s hanging from is also Elastic Cord. The entire spider is attached using dimensionals.

To finish off the card, I added a rub on from Chit Chat Rub Ons onto Basic Gray card stock punched with the Modern Label Punch, attached with dimensionals.

Version 2 of the Spider Web Glitter card uses Supernova Fine Glitter in Orange. Pretty much everything is the same as the card above.
