How was your weekend? I have been busy making jam for the first time ever! Either side of me plum trees grow in my neighbours' gardens and they have always encouraged me to help myself to them. Well last year the frost practically killed them off before they started so we didn't have any, but this year they have made up for it! We have had a bumper crop! I think I picked at least 10 kilos of them off one tree alone today, not all for me by the way! So I have made one batch of jam, and I have another to make tomorrow...I plan to sell it at our Macmillan coffee morning at work on Friday!
Anyway, you came to see a card right? Ok well here is one then. It is for my friend to give her nephew later this week.
I have used Woodgrain EF and Pear Pizzazz Chevron Ribbon for the front of the card, along with the cute little Monkey from the Zoo Babies.
When I started making this card I knew I wanted it to be a bit different, and special. Well, the special part of this card is inside...
Don't you just love it?! I stamped each of the characters by colouring them with Stampin' Write Markers before stamping. I then fussy cut each one out, leaving about 1cm on the bottom of each so I could bend it and stand each of them up. I coloured each of the flaps to allow them to blend in with the base.
It is a very simple card really...just fiddly! And incredibly effective!
I'm sure little Ryan will love popping each animal up when he opens this card...lots of fun!
