Not my circus, not my monkeys

Hi!!

I have a fun pop-up box card to share with you today featuring Mama Elephant “Little Monkey Agenda” stamps and dies. These monkeys are the cutest!! The idea behind this card is the saying “not my circus, not my monkeys”, which I think is super funny.

I began inking some Bristol paper to have an striped pattern, which gives the look of circus, and run it through my Big Shot using Lawn Fawn “scalloped box card pop-up” dies. I decorated the outside with the first part of the proverb using Neat and Tangled “Journaling Alphas” dies. I covered the letters with Glossy Accents after I glued them and added the little Son Gokū, the Monkey King 🙂

I added a lot of monkeys from Mama Elephant ” Little Monkey Agenda” stamps and dies to the inside of the card. Some of them are hanging from the tightrope, some others are making acrobatics… I wanted to have a lot of things going on here!

The second part of the expression is on the front flap. I used Lawn Fawn “Harold’s ABCs” stamps to spell it, stamping it on a white panel with Versafine Onyx black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I decorated the lateral flaps with more monkeys!

I love how this card tuned out. I think it is super fun! I hope you like it too!!

Thanks for stopping by!
