A Monkey Mail Hello!

Today's featured card is from Polka Dot Orchard's Monkey Mail digital stamp set by Artist Kimberly Wiener.  This set comes with 19 images and 18 sentiments!  Be sure to check it out especially since it's currently on SALE!

For this card I simply selected the image - the monkey with the word hello beside her in the oval, and printed it on Neenan 110# card stock.  I used Copic Marks R81, R83, R85 and R56 to color the ring and monkey holding the mail.  

I used a standard x-stitched rectangle to die cut the edges of the colored image and also the OMG! Hello background paper. Next I carefully cut out the hello out on the inside line, then traced the inside line with a black multi-liner.  I glued the background paper to a standard A2 card base. Then I cut a small piece of cellophane behind the open window and  glued it to the back of the colored image.  I carefully lined up the Hello onto the background paper so it would line up straight when I added the top layer.   After gluing it down, I added the few sequin sprinkles on top of the Hello. 

I took double sided foam tape and went around the back of the open window and the edges of the colored image.  Lastly I removed the tape coverings and added the top layer to the card base, ensuring all the sequins were inside the window area. Wa-La ~ a Monkey Mail Hello Shaker Card!
