Monkey Valentine's Card


I have been asked to make a Valentine's card with the monkeys. 

I matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red card and white embossed card. I curved the corners on all layers with a punch. I printed a sentiment and die cut it with a Sizzix scalloped heart from a nesting set and attached it to a red heart before adding it to my card. I die  cut the monkeys with Marianne dies. I cut the elements in relevant colours. I die cut the small heart using a die from the Sizzix set then added the die cut letters which I cut using a Xcut die. I cut the  very small heart with a punch. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.
