Show Me the Monkey

We’ve got one of my favourites back this week in The Cat’s Pajamas Sneaky Peek Week...Sock Monkey!  He’s such a little charmer :)

Doesn’t he look ready to party here?  I created an interactive card today that has all the fun on the inside with some new Cut Ups Dies.  But for the outside I created a little dancing monkey party, stamping Socks, his party hat and birthday cupcake onto Neenah White paper, then colouring it all up with Copics.  

I added some older CutUps dies to frame out the sentiment - Fancy Flip Frames and Framed Up, along with some red enamel dots.  

And then, you open it all up to the party on the inside!  I used the new Long Tall Popup Die to create two separate pop ups (so fun with the more narrow design), then placed the Sock Monkey CutUp (SO cute!) on one side, the Birthday Balloons Banners Dies over the top pop ups (with the balloon ends cut off), and then added the mini-banners from the new Country Fair CutUps I’ve shown you earlier this week  and some cupcakes in a tower from this set along the bottom.  

Isn’t it fun?  

Here’s all the new goodies I used today to show off to you...

Your adorable monkeys tumbling around the page remind me of sock monkeys in the dryer. Thanks for the smile!
