Card Making (and not very QUILTY!)

I have two High School Graduation parties to attend this month in Michigan. So I have been playing in the card making stash this week! My Mom also asked that I make a card for her to give.

First up: a money holder card for our niece who wished for ca$h and not a quilt. Tutorial found here. I had to make some adjustments as I didn't have the slit punch or many *graduation* stamps. DD and I were at the scrap booking store so I brought a sticker set that worked nicely in these cards.

Second: A more traditional card inspired by the sketch at Mojo Monday. I made a few adjustments so it would fit into a traditional envelope.

Third: Another traditional card.

Fourth: A money holder card. Unfortunately, I made it to fit into a regular envelope but you have to fold the ca$h or check inside the card. :( Directions found here.

Fifth: A money holder card. This one I made longer. Better for the ca$h but doesn't fill the envelope.

Sixth: Thought I would switch to a money holder Birthday card. I made it a little taller~well~as tall as would work for the 8 1/2 inch piece of card stock. :) This is better~but there is still some empty space in the envelope. A work in progress that is developing. I did search the web and found that a monarch size envelope would work for the money holder cards but I wonder if it would mail for 44 cents?!

On the quilty front: I quilted the green and white D4P but my tensioner spring snapped off on the longarm~need to order a new one and replace it before more quilting will happen. :)
