Envelope Punch Board Money Holder Tutorial & New Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit

After making the long narrow card that I shared with you yesterday, the idea to create a money holder card using the Envelope Punch Board popped into my head.  I created a holiday and a birthday version and I’m sharing a quick tutorial showing you the size and scoring points.  I’m putting this out on my Tutorials page as well so that you can find it back quickly when you need it.

My holiday money holder card front was inspired by Retrosketches #82 and I used the Very Merry Tags and Wishing You stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create it.

Very Merry Tags

I used the Make a Wish and Sassy Salutations stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create the birthday version of the card.

Make a Wish

I’ll start by showing you the quick tutorial for the card base.  Both versions use the same card stock size and measurements for the base.

Money Holder Tutorial

Cut a 8-1/4″ x 7″ card stock panel.  Score the panel at 3″ and 6″.

Money Holder Tutorial 1

Turn the card stock 90 degrees and place the end with the score line closest to it into the Envelope Punch Board.  Line up the left side of the card stock with the 3-1/2″ line and punch.

Money Holder Tutorial 2

Money Holder Tutorial 3

Line up the bottom of the punch “v” notch with the cutting point on your trimmer and cut the card stock from the edge to the notch on one side.

Money Holder Tutorial 4

This is what your card stock should look like after you’ve cut it.

Money Holder Tutorial 6

Flip your card stock over and fold the notched flap toward the center and the top flap toward the center.  Adhere the sides of your pocket with a piece of Sticky Strip on each side.  Then decorate as you wish!  Just an FYI, the white card stock inside the pocket is not adhered on my card, I put it inside so that you could see the pocket better in the picture.

Money Holder Tutorial 5

To decorate the front of the holiday card, I cut a panel of Season of Style DSP  lengthwise 1″ from the edge.  I used blue painters tape and I taped the two panels together at the distance that I wanted, then taped the Circles Collection Framelits die to the DSP panels and I ran it through the Big Shot.  I left everything taped together and I applied SNAIL to the back of the DSP and I adhered both panels to the card front at the same time to help me with the spacing.  Once the panels were adhered, I removed the Framelit and painters tape.

Very Merry Tags 1

I colored the image from the Very Merry Tags stamp set with my Stampin’ Write Markers and I stamped it on a Whisper White panel.  I punched the image out with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Very Merry Tags 4

I adhered a Neutrals Designer Button  with a Glue Dot after tying a piece of Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine through it to the other side.

Wishing You

I stamped the sentiment from the Wishing You stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Whisper White panel, punched it out with the Scallop Oval Punch, adhered it to a Cherry Cobbler Extra Large Oval Punch with SNAIL, then adhered it to the inside of the card with SNAIL.  I stamped the other part of the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink on the card base, then I adhered a strip of the Season of Style DSP with SNAIL to complete it.

Very Merry Tags

I also made an envelope with the instructions from the Envelope Punch Board for a 3″ x 7″ card from the Season of Style DSP.

Make a Wish

I started the birthday money holder by coloring the sentiment from the Make a Wish stamp set with my Stampin’ Write Markers and stamping it on a Crisp Cantaloupe panel.  I scored the panel with my Simply Scored Diagonal Plate every 1″.  Then I scored the panel a second time at the 1/4″ marks (1-1/4″, 2-1/4″, 3-1/4″ etc).  I adhered the stamped panel to Bermuda Bay card base with SNAIL.

Make a Wish 1

I adhered a panel of Birthday Basics DSP to a panel of Bermuda Bay card stock, then to the card front with SNAIL.

Make a Wish 2

I punched chevrons using the Chevron Border Punch from Summer Starfruit, Bermuda Bay, Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple and Basic Bray card stock and I adhered them to the card front with SNAIL.  I finished the card front by adding a rhinestone to each of the chevrons.

Sassy Salutations

I finished the inside of the card by stamping the sentiment from the Sassy Salutations stamp set in VersaMark ink, sprinkling it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossing it, then adhering a strip of the Birthday Basics DSP with SNAIL.  ***Note, I stamped and embossed the panel before I adhered the sides closed so that I wouldn’t get embossing powder inside the pocket.

Make a Wish

I made an envelope for the card with the Envelope Punch Board and I added a strip of Birthday Basics DSP and a 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch from Raspberry Ripple card stock using SNAIL to adhere them and an In Color Boutique Details using a Glue Dot to adhere it.

  1. The env. punch board has already made it to my list for special card envelopes, but now I have more reasons to justify it! Very clever!!

  2. I wish I wasd moved already so I could get my envelope punch board ordered. I love these money cards, Amy. They’re great! Thanks for sharing the steps!

  3. Lovely! Worth mentioning that for UK crafters, you will have to change the size tho. For a good fit for a £20 use a bit of cardstock of 10×6.5, scoring at 3.5 and 3.5 🙂 Am now using one of these to save up for my house move.
