WEDDING MONEY CARD

Hey everyone Ken here with Ken's Kreations. Today's post I am going to change it up a little bit and feature a card that I made for my niece for her wedding. I knew I was going to get her cash for wedding but wanted to give it to her a unique way. Off to Pinterest. Well this gave me the ideas to use this:


I started off with the base of the card. I used Black Card Stock cut to an A2 size card on my Cricut Explore. Now comes the fun part folding MONEY. For this specific task I watched a few YouTube videos to get the bride and groom just perfect. You will need to start with how much money you would like to give on the card and break it down into the amount of bills you will need to use. Once you have an idea of the amount you want to give you can start with the groom. The groom has two parts to him. The top with the tie and the trousers. I have provided both videos from the Home Made Gifts Easy. Also to make sure I got good creases on the money I used my Score Tool. Make sure to subscribe to him to show him the love of his videos!

Now we can turn our focus onto the Bride. She in my opinion was a little tougher to fold and required me to watch the video like a BILLION times. Okay not a BILLION more like 10. Here is the step -by-step on how to fold the bride:

Once both of these are finished you have the happy couple. Now I did use some Washi Tape to hold down parts of the outfits and to secure it to the card. The Washi Tape is strong enough to hold, but gentle enough to not rip you money. Now I took a twenty dollar bill and folded it down to create an offset to my sentiment. I used my Cricut Explore with the Variety Pen Set t write the sentiment and then attached it to an offset of Black Card Stock.


Now at this point you can be finished but I still had some money I wanted to give to my niece and her new husband so I decided to add a butterfly on the inside of the card. This fold was much easier to accomplish. You will need the money and some Wire to attach the two parts of the butterfly:



Well i hope you enjoyed the money card that I made for my niece and her new husbands wedding. It was so much fun to step out of my comfort zone to make a unique fun card for such a special occasion!

YOUR ARE A STAR CARD- DESIGNED BY MISTY

I am so excited to share with you a card made by Oak Tree Stamps Design Team MemberMITSYANA WRIGHT . Make sure to check out her blog over at http://www.upontippytoes.com/. Let's take a look at her amazing card using the Moody Ballerina Stamp Set:

Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends!!  Mitsy here from Up On Tippy Toes... I'm back again with another cute project from Oak Tree Stamps!!

I can't get enough of this Moody Ballerina set!!

And, I have an awesome COUPON CODE for you to get this set for 30% off!! Yay!
Just use my special Up On Tippy Toes code UOTT30 during checkout to take advantage of this great deal!!


I start off by stamping my image with Momento Tuxedo Black ink onto Canson 150 Illustration paper. Then I color my image with my Spectrum Noir markers.

SKINTONE : FS4, FS6, FS8
 HAIR: TN1, TN3, GB1, GB2
CLOTHES:CR3, FS8

For her eyes I decided to switch to my Le Plume II markers... they're dual tip and one tip is super fine. Perfect for doing the small spaces in the eyes.


I usually stamp m ore than one image at a time... just in case I have an "accident". It's great to have another image as a back up. Then I used my precision tipped scissors to fussy cut my image. 



Then I used the second largest circle in my Spellbinders Beaded Circles set to cut Pink cardstock. For some reason it looks beige in the picture but that could be due to my lighting... it is pink, I promise! LOL



Next I used my Marvy 2 1/8" Circle punch to cut a circle to layer onto my beaded circle.



Then I quickly ran it through my Xyron 3" Sticker Maker... peeled and stuck it onto my beaded circle. Then I added foam adhesive to the back of my little ballerina and attached her to my circle.



For my Card base I made a standard A2 (4 1/4"x 5 1/2") sized card. I embossed the front panel with this adorable star patterned embossing folder from Darice.



I cut a pennant using the second largest pennant die from my Spellbinders Baby Bunting set.



I used my Xyron Mega Runner to layer it over a piece of teal cardstock and fussy cut about a 1/4" border around it. 



Then I adhered my layered pennant onto my card base.



 I attached my beaded circle to the pennant leaving a small gap at the top. In this area I attached a simple bow made from pink polka-dot grosgrain ribbon with a bit of Diamond Glaze and let dry.

For a final touch I adhered a group of glittered enamel dots at the bottom of one of my pennant tails

And here is my final card!!

Isn't she just DARLING??!!
