Today I have a very cute card to show you that I made for my little nephew Harry. I was still in the mood for making acetate cards and I could just see this idea because it reminds me of the little tike!
My special nephew loves to get up to all sorts of trouble like climbing and swinging and he is a monkey!
As you can see the card base is in blue card and I cut away the front panel and stuck the thicker acetate in it's place, but I did leave a little folded over and cut it the shape of the tree top so I had something to stick the acetate to. I then cut some dark geen card to cover the tape and look like the tree top. The tree trunk was cut and embossed with a cuttlebug folder and I added some lime green card and sponged it to create grass. The boy is of course one of Lily of the Valley's coloured with Pro markers. The daisies were simply punched out and coloured with a yellow pro marker. I cut the number out on my cricut machine.
As you can see I found a cute monkey digi image and coloured and cut him out putting him in the tree because I think he would be great friends with Harry. The Birthday banner was from a papermania stamp set but the words were a Dove Craft stamp set.
All in all I was quite pleased how it turned out. I am entering into
