My boys are at the age where all they want for birthdays and Christmas is cash - preferably high denomination cash! So I thought I'd better whip up something a bit Christmas-y to hold the cash. This idea tied in quite nicely with both the Just Add Ink challenge to Just Add Your Christmas Project and the color challenge at Dynamic Duos which is Black, Cherry Cobbler with a dessert option of sparkle.
Now this idea is not the least bit original as I've seen this sort of thing around blogland before, but I worked from memory and imagination and came up with this.
I measured a $100 note and cut my cardstock to fit. I sponged the edges in Cherry Cobbler to give a bit of dimension and added some Flower Soft to the top and bottom of the front. The belt has a Silver Glimmer Paper buckle made from some Nestabilities Labels dies. The buttons are from the retired Buttons #5 sizzlet.
Pretty simple, but my boys aren't big on appreciating the aesthetics of anything unless it's a car LOL.
Thanks for looking.
