Santa Stache Money Holder

Ho! Ho! Ho! Doesn't this money card holder look adorable?  A demo friend Anita whom I swap with each month made a similar money-card holder using the Bearing Gifts stamp set, but I made mine using the Santa Stache stamp set.  Here are my instructions:

Stamp Set:  Santa Stache, Good Greetings

Cardstock:  Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Whisper White

Ink:  Memento Black Ink

Other:  Big Shot, Mustache Framelit, Word Bubbles Framelits, 1” Circle Punch, Cherry Cobbler and Skin Tone Blendabilities, Dimensionals, Tiny Triangles Embossing Powder,  Sticky Strip, Bone Folder, Adhesive, Paper Snips


1.     Cherry Cobbler cardstock is cut 4¼” x 11” and scored at 5½” and 8¼”.

2.    Use a Bone Folder to crease the scored marks.  Fold card in half at the 5½” mark.  Then fold the other score line to the left of the card.

3.    With the 1” Circle Punch, do a half punch in the middle of the card.  This will be where the gift card can be pulled out of the pocket.  Use Sticky Strip around the edges leaving room for a gift card to be inserted by cutting Sticky Strip in half lengthwise.

4.    The Basic Black card stock for the left front of the card is 2½” x 4”.  Insert it into the Tiny Triangles Embossing Folder and run it through the Big Shot on Tab 1.  Adhere to the front using Adhesive.

5.    Stamp Santa on Whisper White cardstock using Memento Black ink.  Color his hat with the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities and his face with the Skin Tone Blendabilities.  Use the Paper Snips to trim out Santa and adhere him to the 2¾” x 3” Basic Black cardstock.  Layer onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock with Adhesive and attach to center of card.

6.    Stamp Santa’s mustache (part of it will be Santa, of course) on Whisper White and cut it out with the Mustache Framelit and attach over Santa’s first mustache with Dimensionals.

7.    Stamp Ho! Ho! Ho! From Good Greetings (Hostess set) with black ink and cut it out with the Word Bubble Framelit and adhere to the card with Dimensionals.
