Stampin’ Up! Little Monkey – Bananas About You Card

This adorable monkey is delivering a very special message! This card was created using the Little Monkey Bundle (Stamp Set and Monkey Builder Punch) along with some cheerful paper from the Bright & Beautiful 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Pack. These items are orderable by customers beginning May 2!

I adhered a Lemon Lime Twist solid paper from the Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper pack and stamped several tree branches and vines onto the left side of the panel. I used Stampin’ Blends in Copper Clay and Old Olive to color in the tree branches and leaves. A second Designer Series Paper panel was added to the right side of the first panel – this one in a Lemon Lolly and white striped print. The panels were then adhered to a Copper Clay mat and adhered to a card base in Lemon Lime Twist.

The monkey, banana and three banana leaves were stamped onto scraps of Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends. I used the Little Monkey Builder punch to punch out the monkey and banana. The three banana leaves were fussy cut using paper snips. I adhered the banana to one of the monkey’s hands and the monkey was placed among the stamped tree branches on the card front.

The sentiment “I’m bananas about you” was stamped onto a scrap of Basic White cardstock using Old Olive ink and I die cut the sentiment label using the 2nd to smallest square die from the Stylish Shapes Dies set. The fussy cut banana leaves were adhered behind the top of the sentiment label and the sentiment label was adhered to the lower right of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A single Linen Thread bow was adhered just above the sentiment label.

On the inside panel the hanging monkey was stamped onto the top of the panel. The image was colored in using Stampin’ Blends. I also stamped several vines around the monkey using Old Olive ink. The panel was adhered to a Copper Clay mat and this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.

Another monkey and banana were stamped onto the envelope front and colored. A piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap and the excess paper was trimmed away from the flap. Several Copper Clay Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems were adhered to the card front to finish off the card.
