Christmas Monkey

 Welcome to Christmas in July at High Hopes Rubber Stamps. The design team is getting a head start on their Christmas cards and will be providing inspiration all month long! 

Apparently "Ski Bum Monkey" was inspired by the photos he took on his winter vacation last year. He has chosen his favourite photo to send out as his Christmas cards this year! 

After stamping the monkey and mountains on alcohol marker friendly paper I coloured them with Copic markers and hand fussy cut them. 
I set them aside and found patterned paper from Recollections and cut them to fit my card 5"x 5" card base. Next I cut a polaroid die, trees and a piece of snow. Before gluing anything down, I used my Misti to stamp the sentiment on the polaroid frame. 
 I cut a piece of matching patterned paper to go across the middle of the card, and glued the mountains, trees and snow down. Next I added the polaroid frame over the mountains and added some sparkly snowflakes (hard to see in the photo) and ribbon. Ski Bum Monkey was added with foam pop dots and enamel dots finish off the card.
