Barrel Full of Monkeys

Here is another adorable set released this month at Doodle Pantry. I think this is my first pop-up card. This card was so much fun to make...seriously!


I am using the newly released set called Monkey Barrel. For the front, I pulled the pre-colored monkey into my Silhouette, traced it, and did a print and cut. It's popped up slightly using thin foam tape. The sentiment is not from the set, I created it myself and printed it on a light yellow card stock. I distressed it with early espressor and chocolate chip inks. The bananas are from the Lil Gorilla Jungle set. I pulled the pre-colored banana into my Silhouette, traced it, and did a print and cut. I then used Copic marker G85 to color the stem and the tip of each one. There are 3 individual bananas stacked on top of each other. I then added candy dots from Stampin' Up! to finish the front. For the inside, I used a pop-up cut file from Silhouette's online store (Design #66546) and cut it using yellow card stock. I printed the designer paper from the set onto white card stock and then used that to cut the insides of the cut file. I also added dark brown card stock for the pop-up features. I did a trace, print and cut on the barrel full of monkeys, 2 more single monkeys and the bananas. The large banana with the rest of the sentiment I created using a banana image from the internet. I printed it on yellow card stock and hand cut it out. Here is what you get in the set. Laurie added a ton of adorable sentiments for this set.

  15. Fabulous fabulous fabulous!!! I read every word as to how you did it. You didn't miss a beat and answered all my questions. I had in my head. I must case this...just finding the time is the issue. I love pop up cards and they really aren't time consuming once you get the hang of it. I love the front as much as the inside. Love how you had him flipping and the sentiment on an angle,,..so dang cool!!!
