Monkey heartfelt Card...

hello!  I hope you all have been staying busy crafting! I have been having fun with these monkeys...this is the 3rd project with these stamps and dies. I hope you can find some inspiration in my simple cards... no flowers again!

Products used:

HCPC - 3779 Monkey Antics Cling Stamp
HCD1 - 7134 Monkey Antics Die Set
HCPC - 3780 Relaxin'Monkeys Cling Stamps
HCPC - 3777 Palm Tree & Monkeys Cling Stamps
HCP1 - 7132 Palm Tree & Monkeys Die Set'
Monkeying Around paper collection

Other products used Spellbinders Nestabilities labels twenty-two, white and black card stock, to color the palm tree, monkeys and leaves - Memento "Olive Grove, Espresso Truffel and Toffee Crunch"

Cut the card base from the white paper card stock using the Nestabilities die cut. Make sure you set the die just a little bit over the edge so it cuts a card base. Fold top part of the card in half, this will create a sort of Z card.  

Now from the paper collection cut 2 shape panels, 1 from the white card stock and 1 from the black card stock. Add one of the panels to the inside of the card, then cut another panel from the smaller die from white card stock and center this onto the card.

Cut one of the sentiments from the paper collection, I used "enjoy" and attache it to the upper corner of the panels.

Now, cut the black and white panels in half and adhere them so that they give the one panel from the collection a "layered" look.
Next, stamp, color and die cut the monkeys, bananas and palm tree and adhere them to the center of the card panels. 

You're done, quick and fun.
