Punched Monster to bring out the kid in you!

monsterHello! I have a fun little monster card to share with you today. I needed to make a bunch of cards for kids, and so I did a big search to find some fun cards to create. I CASED this card from HERE. I loved the idea, and it just brought a smile to my face, so I knew it would be a hit with the kids that I had in mind.

I used a variety of punches and framelits to build my monster. It was a great way to use up some small scraps of paper and even some “old” paper and cardstock.                                I used the Starburst Framelits (p.231) and these punches (p.219-223): Boho Blossoms punch, 1″ circle punch, 3/4″ circle punch, 1/2″ circle punch, small circle from the Owl Builder punch. I just cut strips of paper for the arms, legs, and belt, and I used the Starburst framelit to cut the ends of the belt.  I popped up the smaller Starburst cut “belly” with stampin’ dimensionals and added the teeth in-between (which I just cut with paper snips).

Such a fun card to create AND to give. I can’t wait to see those little faces when this guy pops out of the envelope!!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have some time to play around with some paper and punches and see what you can build too!
