This whimsical guy gives some good birthday advice!

Hello, crafty Dies R Us fans! Leslie here from Love To Scrap 2 and I’m thrilled to be back on the blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun birthday card featuring the Elizabeth Crafts Jungle Leaves Die Set which paired perfectly with the whimsical Chikoo stamp set in my stash! I originally was thinking child birthday (specifically one of our youngest grands) but I know some adults that would love it!

This is a clean and simple design, so let's get started!

1. Cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base and front layering panel from white cardstock along with dark green front and inside layering panels, and round the bottom right corner of each. Cut embellishing strips for the inside from medium and dark green cardstock. Finally, using the Elizabeth Crafts Jungle Leaves Die Set, cut some jungle leaves from medium and dark green cardstock. 

2. Stamp the image in brown ink on the white front layering panel and color it with alcohol markers.  Stamp his right hand a second time on a piece of scrap white cardstock, color it and fussy cut it, and set it aside. Layer the jungle leaves die cuts together and adhere them to the panel. Using the Crystal Katana Pick-Up & Glue Tool, paper-piece the tiny little hand set aside earlier so it looks like he's holding onto the vine. This tool is amazing for maneuvering small paper-pieced items into place! Mask his left hand, stamp the bananas in brown ink, and color them with alcohol markers. Layer the panel onto the dark green cardstock layer. 

3. Stamp the front and inside sentiments in brown ink. Adhere the embellishing strips on the left side of the inside panel, and stamp some bananas in the lower right corner in brown ink and color them to match those on the front. Adhere the panels to the front and inside of the card base, and you're done! Super cute!
