Good Rosey Rooster to ya!


WHAT???!!! I made this card a little while ago and have not posted it yet. I LOVE the Impression Obsession stamps and Leigh Hannan is my favorite artist over there! I have been looking at these stamps on line and just could NOT justify (to my hubby at least) why I NEEDED them. Well, I am luck enough to live by the best stamp store in North Carolina... Stampers Alley... and she had them for 30% off... and no shipping!!! No time to justify... I had to SHOP!
I embossed this Rooster in detail gold embossing powder and then I set to coloring him in! I used SU ink and a water color brush and here is my result. I thought the background paper was perfect and the scrolls and dots look like a marquis in New Orleans (to me at least). I am not sure if there is a Rosey Rooster Holiday... but if there is ... have I got THE card for it!!!

Hi Dawn,

Glad you liked my money holder. There is no template. It is very easy to do.


1. Score & fold the envelope in half.

2. Using the score line as a guide, cut the flap in half up to the card base.

3. Glue the left side of the flap to the base of the envelope. (This does not show as it is covered with cardstock.)

4. I covered the right side of the flap with a folded piece of cardstock and cut the sides at an angle (see my sample). Just measure the height and width of the flap; double the height and glue to the flap before cutting the sides at an angle.

5. Decorate the rest of the card as desired.

6. Close the flap over the front of the card and adhere a magnet to the back of the flap and card front to keep the flap closed.

That's basically it. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to let me know.
