I created this card in Design Studio. I wanted to create a card that when you opened it there was an unexpected surprise inside and I think I did with this card. The card is a 6 x 6 square card that opens in the middle. I only used Birthday Cakes Cricut cartridge. I used the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder on the ribbon of the present and went over the dots with a white gel pen and did some faux stitching around the green edges of the present. I used a Happy Birthday stamp from My Craft Spot stamp set. Last I added some buttons to 2 opposite corners.
Here's the surprise on the inside flap...a cute little pink monkey that is stamped with Love You, also from My Craft Spot. Again I used the Cuttlebug and embossed the face and belly of the monkey with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I adhered some tiny google eyes to the monkey and some dots done with a white gel pen.
On the inside I cut out the Happy Birthday phrase, adhered all the layers and added some dots with the white gel pen. I also did some faux stitching around the middle panel just to make it stand out a bit more.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you liked my little surprise inside card!
