This is a birthday card for one of my very best friends. She loves purple, monkeys, and all things a little over the top.
Size: Vertical side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I began by stamping and clear embossing all of the images. I used Crayola Fine Line markers and a water brush to water color everything in. I used a white gel pen, to add some details to the party hats and letters. Once the images were dry, I die cut everything out with the matching dies.
I die cut two stitched rectangles from some water color paper. Once was for the front of the card and one was for the inside liner. I used three shades of green Distress Ink to ink smoosh on the front panel. Once the smooshed ink was dry, I added some leaves using two of the same Distress Inks. Then, I began creating my scene. I glue the vines and bottom monkey to the panel with liquid glue. I used dimensional glue dots for most of the monkeys. I used thin foam tape for the letters. Once, I had the main images on, I tucked in the extra leaves and hearts. Then, I stamped the custom sentiment. Thank goodness for the Misti! I double stamped the sentiment to make it really stand out against the ink smooshing. Lastly, I adhered the panel to an orange card base.
For the inside panel, I stamped the sentiment and adhered an extra bunch of bananas and some leaves. I couldn’t let that adorable monkey but go to waste so I adhered that to the inside panel with another banana.
