Digital-Ink Co. (DIC0007) Challenge

It's Monday and time for another Digital-Ink Co. Challenge. This week we are challenged to make ANYTHING BUT A CARD. You don't want to miss the creations posted by my team mates this week .... AMAZING ideas and inspiration!! There will be a link to each of their blogs at the end of my post ... please check them out!!

I did make a CARD but it's a MONEY card for the holidays. We, the design team, are using images from another D-IC creator ... SEWN Together and the image I chose to use is Morty the Moose in Sleigh Bells (isn't he just toooooo cute!!). Please be sure to check out all the sweet images Angela has available at our SHOPPE. Our sponsor this week is another awesome creator ... M&M Designz. You'll want to check out Judy's images while you are visiting the SHOPPE too.

Details for my creation are as follows: Base card is 8-1/2" x 6-3/4" ... scored at 2-1/2" and 5-1/2". When taping the sides of the panel which will hold the money ... be sure not to use adhesive larger than 1/4" wide or your money won't fit. I have used a 1-1/4" circle punch for my center slide out 1/2 circle cut. Morty was colored with Prisma pencils, Gamsol & Prismacolor Markers. My designer paper is from the Debbie Mumm Harvest & Holidays pack and the felt snowflakes are from Creative Impressions. Decorating inside and out of these money holders is endless!

Why not come play along and share your creativity with us! Be sure to make a direct link back to Mr. Linky on our Challenge Blog and if you are uploading to other online galleries (SCS, PCP, etc.) be sure to use the keyword/tag: DIC0007. I can' t wait to see what you create ... I could sure use some new ideas ... REALLY!!! Here is what you will be playing for this week! This beautiful vintage image is by M&M Designz and it could be yours!!
