I have a card to share with you today using the Monkey Business digi set from Deedee's Digis. This is the current Digi of the Month and is available this month for a special price in the shop or Deedee will email it to you for free if you purchase $10 or more (after any discounts) in the shop. You can see all the details here.
This month we're celebrating the one year anniversary of Deedee's Digis being back in business. So the Digi of the Month challenge has a couple twists:
Twist #1: FREE for all - participants from last month's Digi of the Month challenge received the entire set free. However, one of the images is free to download from the blog this month. If you make and link up a project using one of the images from the set, you receive the next month's featured set free.
Twist #2: PRIZES!! There will be weekly prizes and then a monthly winner. Be sure to check out the blog post here for all the details.
Back to my card....I made a 5.5" square joy-fold card. After die cutting the single monkey pre-colored image from the set, the background was sponged with light blue ink for a sky. One of the sentiments was die cut and double matted. Usually I have a brad or design element for the top layer to tuck under to keep a joy-fold card closed. That didn't work on this card design but the extra weight from the sentiment keeps the top flap down. Some glossy accents was applied to the banana and the heart on the top of the cupcake.
One of the digi papers was cropped down to a strip and then die cut to add a little interior decorating. This is one of the benefits of digis - you can resize them for your project.
