Barrel of Christmas Monkeys
I wasn’t going to do any challenges this week so that I could concentrate on mass producing Christmas cards instead. But Just Add Ink have a challenge to use “critters” on a card and I couldn’t resist. I thought I’d use my monkeys again but in a different way this time. Aren’t they cute! It kind of reminds me of when we used to play Barrel of Monkeys.
Our local card shop sometimes has packs of hallmark envelopes for sale which I buy occasionally if they have any interesting sized ones. (Of course I never buy cards anymore so this is about the only business they get from me!) These ones were long and skinny and red. So I made this card to fit and it measures approx. 9cm x 20cm. It does mean I can’t get 2 cards from a sheet but the size is fun and perfect for my hanging Christmas monkeys.
Stamps : Party Hearty, Fox and friends
Card : Real red, white, wild wasabi
Ink : wild wasabi, early espresso
Other : rhinestones, big shot, white pen, timeless type junior alphabet, brights dsp stack
Hope you’re further along with your Christmas card making than I am.
