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:
