Big Boys and Little Boys

Wether their big or small I`m sure the boys would love this Monster card !! The men in our lives can be soooo hard to make a card for, but this one is easy....
First all you need is to choose the stamps you would like to use. Mine are a set by Woodware called "Little Monsters" designed by Francoise Read. To fit my monsters, I cut eight 1 6/8 circles round a piece of card using a die. Then I embossed the piece of card using a brick design embossing folder. Inked round all the edges. On one of the cut out circles I then stamped my Birthday sentiment and stuck it in the middle. Now comes the surgery.....but no blood !! Decide where and how much of your monsters you want to show and then stick them in place and remove all body parts you don`t want !! Then put 3d foam tape on back and stick on front of your card. To add more fun I have put wobbly eyes on the monsters !!

I`ll let you into a secret.........my card is for a BIG boy, well actually my cousins hubby !!
