Hello everyone! It’s been a little bit since I’ve been on here but it’s not due to lack of crafting. I’ve been making cards like crazy. For Mother’s Day my amazing little family gave me an extraordinary Mama Elephant haul which was delivered on Monday. I am over the moon for these monkeys so I stamped them all and started coloring immediately! Here is the first card I made with them. I still have enough monkeys left over for 2 more cards that I have sketched out!
Here is my finished card. If you notice, the background is the one of the ink smooshing backgrounds I posted about last week. I colored the monkeys with copic markers and die cut them out.
Then, I die cut the Mama Elephant Grid Window from white cardstock and also craft foam and layered them together. Then glued it to the card base and started laying out my monkeys. I attached the monkeys with foam squares for added dimension and then stamped a sentiment from the Avery Elle Peek-a-Boo Pals stamp set on white cardstock and layered it on a slightly bigger piece of black cardstock to help it pop.
I opted to leave the inside of the card empty until I’m ready to use it so it’s perfect for ANY occasion that pops up! I’m so in love with these monkeys. Be prepared to see a lot of them in the future!
Thank you so much for stopping by today. As always…
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
