I had a wedding reception to go to for a sweet young couple. I knew the groom from church. I was his Sunday School Teacher when he was 17. So I for the very first time EVER made a 5 minute card. I just kept it simple. This sweet image MONKEY LOVE from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS worked perfectly.

I don't have a picture of the inside but I took a 2" black panel and used a border punch to punch the top then adhered by the bottom and sides leaving a 1/4" border on the bottom and sides of the inside of the card. I placed my money gift inside. Worked great.

My son came away with a goldfish he name Charlie. How? They had a goldfish in a tall cylinder vase on every table as a centerpiece. It looked nice as gave a peaceful feel watching the fish was soothing. Of course I am the one that put it in a vase, gave it water and feeds it. Hmph!

Stamps: Monkey Love (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Paper: Cottonball White, Night Eclipse (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black (from Clear Dollar Stamps)
Accessories: Dimensionals
