Sock Monkey Love

I wanted to play around with my new Sock Monkey set and this is what I came up with! First, I stamped the monkey in Chocolate Chip ink on Kraft cardstock and then I stamped him again on the Bella Rose designer series paper. I cut out his little jammies (or as my 4 year old calls them, "P-jammies") and adhered them on top of the image on Kraft. I stamped the monkey one last time and cut out the head to pop up and give a little extra dimension. Next came the heart, stamped heart on Real Red cardstock, trimmed and popped up in his hand. I layered the Kraft onto Chocolate Chip and then Real Red cardstock.

For the card, I took a piece of 4 1/4" x 11 Very Vanilla carstock, folded in half, and trimmed 1" off the right edge. I stamped the heart border in Real Red, added some more Bella Rose dsp and put it all together with a little Real Red grosgrain ribbon.

Paper: Very Vanilla, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Kraft cs, Bella Rose dsp

Love how the monkey matches the background paper.
