3 Little Monkeys Jumping…Valentine’s Day Card


If you have kids I’m sure you know where that title comes from! Instead of 3 little monkeys jumping on the bed, I decided to have them jumping on big red hearts.  I know we’re about a month and half away from Valentine’s Day but I love that holiday because it involves a lot of chocolate!

This card uses a few new stamp sets from the Occasions Mini including Fox and Friends, Well Scripted, and I {Heart} Hearts, all of which I bought in the new clear mount option. The Occasions Mini goes live Tuesday January 5th for anyone who is interested.

The base is Pink Pirouette card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip Designer Series Paper in my favorite polka dot pattern. I stamped the monkey from Fox and Friends 3 times in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Underneath, I stamped the dotted heart from I {Heart} Hearts in Real Red ink twice. The hearts the monkeys are holding are from I {Heart} Hearts, stamped in Real Red ink and punched out using the new Small Heart Punch, attached to the card with a Mini Glue Dot.

Along the bottom, I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon around the Chocolate Chip DSP (which is attached to the base with Dimensionals). The sentiment is from Well Scripted, stamped in Real Red ink on Pink Pirouette card stock, punched with the Scallop Oval Punch. I attached it with Dimensionals and also Paper Pierced the scallops to coordinate with the polka dot background paper.
