smile....


Today's 365 Cards Scor-it challenge is a money holder. When I think of money, I think of a wallet. I designed a men's billfold that I glammed up...lol. I used Jenni Bowlin paper....the black starry paper is 7 x 7 that I scored in half, making it 3.5 inches tall by 7 inches long.

I had a ball decorating the front..definitely dehoarded a bunch of goodies including a Maya Road scallop frame, k&co pearls, petaloo flowers and a gorgeous oyster shell sheen button. I used a jewelry tag and the smile is from a {portion of} stamp from the Stampin' Up Tiny Talk set..My tension on the janome is freaking out for some reason...aarrgghhh...but I like to think it gives the project a shabby vintage chic look :)


As you can see by the interior shot, I used a different pattern by Jenni Bowlin as the inside flap. It is 2.5 inches tall. I stitched completely around the billfold in order to secure the various papers down and flat. The interior "v" was made by using my circle punch and my paper cutter..basically, I winged it :)

We would love for you to join us in the money holder Scor-it challenge!!

Please check back tomorrow for another Scor-it project/challenge. I tell you, I've been having so much fun creating projects using my fabulous Mini Scor-it!!!
