HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARIA. Yes, I'm shouting. My lovely youngest daughter lives on the other side of the World! I hope Skykomish is sunny and warm today. Miss you loads! So here's the Birthday card I sent off. Before she was born, Maria was called Sprog and when she was first born, we called her Monkey...in a loving, cute way, of course. You'll have to be eagle eyed to see how old she is! Above is the card closed......And here's the card opened. It's quite a long card but folds up to fit into a 5x7 envelope...although, by the time I'd finished it was a 5 and a half by 7 and a half envelope (don't you think it's about time they put halves on the laptop keyboard, with my old one you just press 'insert' and have a choice...on this newer one, nothing happens!)
There's plenty of room on the back to write your sentiment. The paper is from a 12x12 double sided paper pack from The Works, called 'Jungle Dreams.' These's lots of sentiments includerd in the pack. 'Stay Wild Moon Child' just seemed the perfect one! The Monkey's and cocoa nut trees came from a Craft Companion's penny slider kit, Craft Stash do them too (and I still haven't made it yet) I've used my Promarkers to colour them. The Happy Birthday letter die-cuts and circular one and the Balloon 'A' too, all come from The Works including the balloon the Monkeys are holding. I think that one is cut from card but they looked great cut out in foam too!
Skykomish too.. but I've decided that might be a little bit too soppy for an 11 year old Grandson! You can find how to make this type of Pop Out Show Stopper Card over on Sam Calcott's YouTube channel. Sam used the same papers! That's it I think! Thank you for stopping by. If I can, I'll add this to some Challenges!
