Christmas Money Holder Knit Hat


I saw this cute tutorial on Splitcoaststampers for a Beanie Cap Gift Card Holder and I had to make one right away - I love it! I embossed my DP using the Cuttlebug dotted swiss folder and then used a piece of foam to distress the edges of the hat pieces with ink and also brushed it across the raised dots to highlight them. I cut 3 of a flower punch, distressed the edges and layered them with a circle in the middle on a dimensional. The flower is attached to the hat with pop dots.

The image I used of Mo Manning's is my favorite dog Bronte that I cut from the 'Bella and Bronte at Easter' image and then cut out and layered some Christmas ivy from the reverse side of my DP at his collar and added a bit of Stickles for sparkle. Bronte is also on dimensionals so the card can be opened and closed easily at the hinge. I will be using this card as a money card this Christmas season and the greeting is behind the money.

Almost forgot - too many things going on here today! You can find the Beanie Cap Gift Card Holder tutorial at and you can see all of Mo's wonderful images at Also, this is my entry for this week's challenge on Mo's Challenge Blog - theme this week is "Fancy Folds" and you can see all the creations at
