Money card envelope

My niece will be turning 17 next month and as with any teenager, she is hard to buy for, so I usually give her money as a gift.  When I came across a pattern for a pretty money envelope, I thought I'd give it a try.  I was disappointed that the inside liner didn't line up well with the envelope but I'll play with the directions a bit more.  I am hoping by the time she is opening the envelope she'll be so excited about the money she won't care the lining isn't perfect. :)
Many pieces on this set of cards was cut on the cricut from the same pattern from my gypsy, however  after finishing one card, the second card morphed out on it's own. lol  The one on the right was the first card, the one on the left the second.  I guess this is the best I can do making identical cards. hahaha

This card is for a sweet furball that I know who will be seven in June.  She is going to get a box of Trader Joe's gourmet doggie treats from me.

Got the card mojo going!

I've been away from my scrapping room for far too long.  First it was the holidays, the room became wrapping central, then I was under the weather but I've ventured back into my room, started to organize and straighten things up, and in between I've made a card or two.

This first card is for a colleague of mine who was recently deployed.  I wish him well, and a safe return.
