Money Holder...Western Style!


I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday! So now you're in the swing of things for Christmas? Right? :-)

Tonight's card is made with one of my very favorite stamps, the JudiKins Pants Background stamp. I stamped on white cardstock using Adirondack Denim Ink . I stamped a second time to get only the pocket portion of the stamp, then cut it out to adhere to the Jeans Pants.

You will notice that the first image has Happy Holidays stamped on the pocked. I used Hero Arts Holiday Messages clear stamp set. Happy and Holidays were together as one sentiment, so I just snipped them apart so I could stack them, on on top of the other.


The second image shows the card without the holiday sentiment. I couldn't decide which I liked better, so I decided to show you both. Don't you love that *no decision* thing? LOL!

This is a GREAT stamp for money or gift cards. I use it every Christmas, and for a lot of birthdays and other occasions too. It can easily be a masculine card...just depends on how to embellish it. The embellishment I used here on the belt and pocket was some trim I found at WalMart. So you can definitely let your imagination lead you!

Thanks for stopping by! I have several things ready for you later in the week, so please do stop by again soon. And enjoy your Monday? Until then....

I love this card! Very cool! I prefer the one with the sentiment on it, but that's just me. :-)

I've always enjoyed seeing how you create cards with this awesome stamp! It's a classic that never goes out of style. I especially love that tiny red tag on the side of the pocket - so cute!! love it!
