Sock Monkey Easel Birthday Card

My youngest daughter is invited to a birthday party today and the theme of the party is "Sock Monkey".  I used this cut from Lettering Delights Let's Play set to make a sock monkey birthday card for the birthday girl.  I put my monkey on an action wobble to make him more playful:-)  I also pleated my ribbon using scor-tape.  The card is an easel card.  I started with a piece of cardstock sized 4.25" by 11".  I scored it at 5.5" and 7.75".  I cut another piece of cardstock sized 4.25" by 5.5" to go on the top and to build my card top on.  Splitcoaststampers has a great tutorial on these.

look closely and you can see my Action Wobble
doing the "monkey dance"

The sentiment is from a Scrappy Moms stamp set.  I also added some bling and used my Irock.  Have a great weekend!!


  1. I bet all the kids at the party loved watching the little sock monkey dancing around. Your easel card is wonderful!
