I have started preparing for my 10 month old's First Birthday which is in February...wow how time flies! and I came up with these Thank You cards based on the Birthday invite I am still working on. I have always love the monkey on the New Arrival Cricut Cart. so I decide to use it for the invites and thank you cards.
CARD # 1
This card is a Gatefold Card. Length of card stock 5.25 X 8.5 scored at 2-1/8 and 6-3/8. Cute Monkey from Cricut New Arrival cut at 3". For the Monkey's face I used the Peachy Keen - Baby Animal Faces and More stamp. Colored the eyes with the white gel pen- also from PK. Popped it up with Stampin Up Pop dots. The Circle was cut with the EK Success 1 inch Punch. Sizzix Sizzlits Ornate Label #5 in Yellow paper from Lasting Impressions. Quilling- Bananas-2 12 in. Marquis in Yellow. For the ends of the Banana, 4 3in. hearts in Brown. For the Leaves- 2 4in. Marquis in Green. All Quilling strips are 1/8 in. Sentiment "Thank You Kindly" Stampin Up!

This is the Second Thank You card. I used the same materials as the first one with the difference that this card is folded in Half. Card dimensions are 4-1/4 X5-1/2. The Sentiment is different, but also from the Thank You Kindly Stampin Up set.
This is the Invite in the works. It will be a Peek-a-Boo card. Also used the monkey from New Arrival. This card has a tab that when its moved to the left the monkey appears in the window. If the tab is moved to the left the monkey hides.
