Monkeying around


Here’s a very simple interactive card I made using Avery Elle’s adorable Funky Monkey set. I stamped the vine image twice to create a longer vine that could run the full height of the main panel, then coloured it and trimmed it out. I stamped and cut out the monkey image and attached his raised arm to the vine with a brad so that he can swing from the branch (using dimensional foam adhesive on the vine gives enough clearance for the little monkey to swing properly :)).


I love the little envelope from the Avery Elle Air Mail set – it has a couple of little sayings that fit on the letter – so cute!  The background on the card has some wavy hills cut using Mama Elephant’s Landscape Trio dies and some little mushrooms and clouds I had left over from some Lawn Fawn cards I did last week.

This week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme is “A” so I’m entering this card as it uses two Avery Elle sets.
