Cardz 4 Guyz Jungle Fun

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good week. I am on still on  Easter holidays from school and I am having so much fun.

This is my Guest Design Team piece for Cardz 4 Guyz the theme is Jungle Fun this new challenge starts today. When I think of fun and jungles I always think of monkeys.


I started by working out how to make the tunnel card. I had a few attempts using my Hougie board for the scoring. Eventually I worked out the design then I cut an aperture in the front of the card. 


This shows the folds the back panel was separate. I decorated this first by inking a sun masking it and then inking with some stronger colours. I used a mask to create the branch and another to create the grass. 


I added some die cut leaves and ivy.


The cheeky monkeys were stamped in black archival and then heat embossed with clear powder. They were coloured with Promarkers, 


I think a man would like this card. My father-in-law always likes a shaped card he loves trying to work out how they are made.

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Why not join in with the challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  21. What a super card - I love those cheeky monkeys. And I agree, men often like a card that has a bit of "engineering" to intrigue them.
