Hello friends! The Birthday Monkeys from Mama Elephant are absolutely adorable and so much fun! As much as I love these cuties, I think my favorite part if the Swinging Borders banner customized with the Lots of Letters Alpha stamps that ties the whole design together!
I inked the middle of a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and stamped the banner from Swinging Borders and a sentiment from Birthday Wishes directly on the background with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. The Lots of Letters alpha stamps were used to spell out "happy birthday" on the banner.
The banner was colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers directly over the inked background. I kept it "rainbow color" with a more pastel color theme.
The monkeys and accessories from Birthday Monkeys were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Versafinx Onyx Black Ink, colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, die cut with the coordinating Birthday Monkeys dies, and adhered with foam adhesive under the monkeys.
Confetti from Birthday Monkeys was stamped directly on the background and colored in to add to the festive feeling of the card!
