MFT Product Launch....

It's Release Day over at My Favorite Things!  Have you had a chance to check everything out?  Head on over to the MFT Blog to see the whole release.  For now, I have one card left to share using the new Lip Balm Window and Frame.  The fun thing?  The window is the perfect fit for rolled up cash.  Which turns this card into the perfect gift card!

MFT October Product Launch

To create this card, I used the Stitched Strip die along the background to give the card a simple, masculine look.  I head embossed the sentiment, from Essential Sentiment set, onto black card stock and then left a little white strip of cardstock underneath, peeking out.

I have one bill rolled up in here but it could fit several rolled up bills very easily.

A quick and easy way to make it easy for the recipient to pull out the money, is to make a little trap door.  I used the frame die and the negative to cover the back.  I added some washi so it can be easily opened....
