Monkey Card

Here's the first of two cards that I made for an online Cricut Circle Canadian Members all occasion card swap (which was open to US residents as well):

There weren’t many criteria for the swap cards beyond a size requirement [rectangular A2 cards (4.25” x 5.5”) or any shape up to 5.5” x 5.5”] and that we had to make 14 of each of two designs to swap. We did have to advise as to the types of cards we would be making.  This is my “general purpose card” that I said I would create.  It’s blank inside, so I really think it could be used as a Birthday card, a Thank You card, an I Love You card, etc. just by adding the appropriate sentiment to the inside of the card.

The monkey is flocked and mounted on a homemade wobble spring (so the monkey does actually swing a little).  

Supplies Used: 
Cricut Expression
Cricut Life’s a Party Cartridge (Monkey cut)
Googly Eyes
Recollections Flocking Powder
Xyron 900
Florist wire (for wobble spring)
Crochet Cotton Thread
Patterned Paper: Martha Stewart Travel Multimedia Pad
Solid Card Stock Recollections
Fiskars Corner Squeeze Punch 
Sentiment – MS Word
Copic Markers and Inkadinkado Blending Chalks (inking the card stock)
Hot glue and glue stick.

Thanks for looking.
