How to Make a Cute Monster Card + Get Well and Cat Birthday Cards

Hey, folks!

After making the monster tags for my last video, I had one monster left over and didn't want to neglect him!

I made this card using dies from We R Memory Keepers -- the frame die is from one set, and the square with rounded corners is from a separate set.  I thought this sentiment was a good fit for the monster because he's got his cute little hands out! :o)  I wrote "I Love You" with a black fineliner and spelled out the rest with little foam Thickers from American Crafts.

In my video, I showed this card that I made back in February using Taylored Expressions stamps and dies [click here for the original blog post for this card]:

Here's the other card I showed in the video -- I made this for my dad's birthday this year!

The cat is from Penny Black's Good Day stamp set.  I coloured him to look a little bit like Humble! :o)  They have a range of stamp sets and rubber stamps featuring these adorable cats doing different things -- typing, driving a car, riding a bicycle...they're just so cute!

Here's my video showing how I made the monster card, and I also share a simple tip for placing letter stickers!
