Jungle-Themed Birthday Card

Stamped Monkey and Vine 1st Birthday Card

My friend was having a jungle-themed birthday party for her little one’s 1st birthday, so I decided it would be a great time to use some of my animal stamps and design a card to celebrate.  I knew I had to use the cute little monkey stamp:)  My detail-scissors came in handy for trimming the vine closely and I also used colored pencils to color in the stamped images so that the monkey’s cute expressions wouldn’t get hidden by dark marker.  For the final touch I added some neatly written text to the simple card and it was ready to go!

Stamps Used:

Monkey and Vine (Clear Stamps by Autumn Leaves from the Mindy’s Zoo Set)

Patriotic Hearts Card

Handmade Card with Punched Hearts

No stamping required for this card!  I punched out these blue and silver hearts and arranged them on some pre-cut circles to form a pattern and then just glued it down on the red circular card.  For an extra touch, I glued some hearts onto the envelope flap.  (Also for an optional twist, if you wanted the card to look more like an argyle pattern, you could draw in some dashed line diamonds shapes around the design.)  As is or with some extra design elements, this would be a great card to celebrate 4th of July or to honor your favorite military service members and let them know how proud you are of them and how much you miss and love them!
