Happy Birthday Cheyann!
Today's card was meant for an extra special girl, my niece. Happy Birthday Cheyann! She is like a monkey, always bouncing around and having fun. So I knew this little monkey from the Zoo Babies set would be perfect for her! I thought it would be fun if they were climbing and playing around the number 6 since that's how old she is now. She's growing up fast I tell ya'!
I thought it would also be fun to make her a shaped card instead of the standard rectangle. What I did was die cut two scallop circles, then made a score line about a 1/2" from the top of one and creased. I applied sticky strip along that fold and then adhered the other scallop circle on top. So this card is hinged at the top and opens without any trouble. And will it fit in a regular envelope for mailing you ask? Yep, it does! Have you tried a shaped card lately? Give it a try! It really helps to spark your creativity by doing something out of the norm! Happy Stamping!
