Candy Cane Money Holder

Double D Challenges: Candy Cane (red & white)

A red and white candy cane challenge has been posted on the Double D Challenge blog and I just finished my money cards for the Big Kids for Christmas and there was a candy cane design. I was inspired by our Stamp Buddy Gerry and her gift card holders from earlier in the month. The candy cane patterned paper is from my stash, the candy cane is ephemera from Michael’s and the stamped sections is Catherine Pooler’s Stamp of Approval Candy Cane Lane stamp set.

Like Gerry, I added some good old cash instead of a gift card inside. They came together easily word to the wise, I stamped a sentiment on the inside flap using some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink and it faintly came through the front of my white flap. Thankfully I had “sweet” stamps to cover up that OOPS!

And for good measure, here is another red & white card using more Michael’s ephemera and some foiled pieces left over from a previous card project.

Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care, stay safe and Merry Christmas to all!

  1. Both cards are great, however, the candy cane money holder card was perfect and just in time for me to use the idea to make three of them for my grandkids! Thanks for joining us at Double D Challenges.

  2. Gayle, these are great! Love the candy cane theme. Good job on finding just the right way to cover the see through. It’s annoying when things like that happen.

  3. Great way to give money and cute designs too. Nice save with the oops. I like that one of the DT’s used your idea for her own kids.

    1. Thanks, Johanna, it’s a nice presentation money or gift card and a great way to use that ephemera I bought.

  4. Both cards are super cute. I really like the money holder one. Isn’t it wonderful when we find an easy fix to our OOPS???

    1. Thanks, Gerry, and thanks for sharing your gc holder too. I couldn’t believe it when I saw the faint coloring on the front of the card that was already assembled.
