Just a quick post for today. I can't believe I've let photographic and posting get behind! So I'm catching up! By the way, I hope you will sign up to get my posts delivered right to your inbox with the Feedburner link provided in my sidebar! I needed an awesome card for my cousin's son's birthday and I had this cute monkey card already made in my stash of cards.
But it was plain (no cupcake) and didn't really scream "Birthday". So I grabbed a really cute Hero Art's stamps set and stamped and colored my Cupcake. But it still felt plain so I free handed a #2 candle and attached it! I think it came out great!
For the rest of the card I'm going from memory but the Sock Monkey cut is from the B is for Boy Cricut Lite cartridge. I added flocking on the yellow parts of hit hat for texture. And I love adding Googly Eyes to my cuts. The background is embossed with Cuttlebug folders; D'Vine Swirl, Argyle and I can't think of the name of the circles one but will update when I figure it out (i.e. go look, LOL!). The birthday boy loved it so much he immediately pulled the monkey off the card! At least I know he liked it, LOL!
