Playful Monkeys!

Hello DiesRUs Friends!  Vickie Y here to share a happy, fun-loving card for any age!

My card is a top-fold card that I used the Poppy Stamps Jungle Vine Oval die to create the opening.
I then die cut three monkeys from the Poppy Stamps Happy Monkey die, and die cut the word smile from the Penny Black Heartfelt die set.

Here's a tip when die cutting a figure that needs to be pieced together - die cut from white cardstock and then color using your markers, pencils, etc., before piecing together.

I colored the tree and vines using alcohol makers and then placed a solid color of designer paper behind the die cut card front.

Here's a close-up of these playful monkeys!

To complete my card I placed the die cut smile in the lower right corner of the card as shown in the completed card at the top.
