This is my first time using my new scallop punch. The dots around the edges were made with the Sage Shadow marker and then covered with the Glaze clear pen. The dots in the corners are made with the White Souffle pen. The Amethyst colored brads are actually white brads that I colored with Lavender Fluid Chalk ink. Paisley is stamped on Very Vanilla with Sage Shadow Craft and then stippled over with Sage Shadow Classic ink for a softer look.
The finished size of this money holder is 6 1/4 x 3 1/2, and fits the commercial envelope size 6 1/2 x 3 5/8. The base card is made with Naturals Ivory cardstock measuring 6 1/4 x 10 1/2, scored at 3 1/2 and 7 on the long side. Mark the first flap edge at 3 inches up from the bottom, cut on a diagonal and glue the bottom and short side to create the inside pocket (see inside photo here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...00&ppuser=7835 ). The buggy was stamped again in Versamark on Almost Amethyst cardstock and clear embossed, cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

What a treat to see something of your's in between the DD galleries! This beautiful color block layout is really a nice way to cover a tall card format. I love the buggy, the itty bitty "joy" and, of course, the scalloped oval is precious for a baby card. Sage is a favorite color of mine and it looks so nice with the Paisley and the way you softened it. Thanks for the dimensions, because this is definitely something I'll be saving for future reference!

What a sweet and joyful baby money card. I love your colors, panels, brads, corner dots and scalloped punch with dots. Thank you so much Linda for the wonderful directions. My grandkids would love to get their Xmas $ in a card like this (only not a baby motif :-)..........) TFS

Love the patterns and the blocking. But... I especially love that oval. I have just gotten a scalloped punch and I love how you put the dots on it. Just a perfect little touch to accent it. Darling card!!
