Monkey Birthday Card

     Hello again! I decided to do the challenge over at Exploring Cricut which this week is you need 1 pattern paper, 2 Cricut cuts, and the color blue. I couldn't wait to do this so I decided to make a card.
     I made this card to celebrate my youngest son's 21st birthday. I tried to not make it too kiddish but I think I failed.:) He loves monkeys which was the inspiration for the card. The monkey is from the Cricut cartridge Create a Critter 2. I cut him at 5". In the original cut he is holding a heart for Valentine's Day but I didn't want that. Instead I found a present from Cricut cartridge Sweet Treats. It is cut at 1-1/2", then I just glued it to the monkey's hands and chin. I then cut out the vines also on Create a Critter 2. I glued the pattern paper down to my card base which is 4-1/4"x 5-1/2". I glued the vines down leaving a space for the tail to go into so it looks like the monkey is swinging from the vine. Here are the rest of the details:

  • Cricut cart: Create a Critter 2, Sweet Treats
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Pattern paper: K & Company
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig, EK Success
