A Little "Green" for Father's Day


Here's the card I made for my husband for Father's day. I used a piece of retired SU! dsp along with some dark green cardstock and made a tag using a SU! punch. The "shirt" is a $20 bill folded into a shirt, and tied to the tag with some twine. I added an embossed SU! sentiment, rounded the corners and quickly tucked this one away so he won't see it until Father's day. At our ages, we don't need much of anything, so coffee money always pleases him, and I thought he might enjoy a fun, different way of getting some good old cash. 

 I used this tutorial to make the shirt from money.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Oh my gosh! This is too cool! I like how you fancied things up to display your folded shirt. I'm not even looking at that tutorial. I've tried to figure it out so many times.

Aw, this is just too clever - what a nifty way to present a little cash. Love that it's folded into a shirt. You always come up with the most delightful designs & layouts, and just the right colors on your background! Love it! Mr. will too. TFS & Hugs

Love, love, love, Carol!! My neighbor used to make little shirts (and other things, too) out of money and I was always mesmerized by it! For a Father's Day card, it's the BEST!! Hugs, Darnell
