Confirmand Cards with money-pockets by Camilla

Today I want to show you three cards that I have made. They are all Confirmand Cards, something that are very popular here in Norway. I have already been asked to make a few:)
The most common gift is money. And instead of just putting them inside the card, I have now made three different "pockets" to put the money in. I will now show you the cards and their insides.
Here is the first one:
It was a bit hard to figure out how to show the inside the best, but first comes the side where you write your greetings.
On the other side I have made a criss-cross envelope to put the money in.
Here is the second card:
And under you can see how you can place the money. It is quite easy:) I have fasten the paper with brads.
Here comes the third card:
I have made the outside match the inside. When I cut the paper for the card it is four cm longer than my normal card (15 cm). So this measures 15x19cm. Then I fold it in the middle as usual, and also at 15 cm down. The remaining 4 cm is folded up.
The images are from Whiff of Joy.
The sentiments are from Stempelglede.
The papers are from Tim Holtz-Shabby Chic.
All images are coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers.
I have inked (walnut stain) and sewed the edges.

I hope you got some tip and inspiration!:) Thank you for looking.
Hugs, Camilla.
