For my project I made my first tri-fold card! Super easy, I don't know why it's taken so long for me to try it. Martha Stewart's Scoreboard really made it easy for me, she has all the dimensions listed on where to score for several different card shapes, envelopes and even, boxes!!! I would highly recommend it!!! Well enough about Martha, and on to my card!!! Sorry about the fuzzy pictures, you can click on each one to get a better look.
Meet Ralph "The Taxman"

Sure, he looks friendly, but don't be deceived...Ive heard that his coworkers call him
 "The Auditator" !!!


Wait a minute, who's that???

 

 It's his Arche Enemy of course!!!


 Coming to save the day!!!


It's "REFUNDMAN"!!!


He's flying through the air, 



bringing Refunds to Everyone!!!


Thank you REFUNDMAN!!!

Another Tax Day Saved!!!

Ingredients~
I found Ralph and Refundman at "Dude Time Doodles" http://www.dudetimedoodles.com/They have some really great "Guy" Digis there!!!
Their real names are "Revenge of the Nerd" and "Henry Hero" and I colored them with Copics
The card measures 9 x 6 3/4 and is scored at 2 1/4 and 6 3/4.
Red and Blue card stock-AC Summer
White-PTI
Patterned paper-AC-Tea Party, cut 6 x 2
Fonts-"Chipper" (front) and "Hey Arnold" (inside). I found "Hey Arnold" (yes the cartoon) at TypeNow.net
Cuttlebug-Stars (pockets for $)
Pop Dots (for Ralph)
Wobble (to make Refundman fly)  :D

Boy, this is a LONG post! Sorry about that. So on to the ?

Can you guess how much my REFUND was??? I'll give you a few of hints:
#1~ There is only one "bill" in each pocket of the card.
#2~ I'm using some of  it in the morning to stop by Starbucks for a Double Tall 4 Pump SF Vanilla, Soy Latte', Extra Hot or maybe a Double Tall Cinnamon Dole with 2 Splendas, extra hot. Hmm??? I am way over due for Starbucks!!!
#3~ I won't have much left after my Starbucks. :(

  7. Love your card. Such a clever idea.

    I don't do starbucks, but know it costs more than $2 so I'll guess you got $6 back (2 bills minus 1 treat = a little left).
