speaking of monstas...

...not that we were...but if we had been speaking of monstas, here is one who'd definitely like to have been included in our conversation! :)


this was one of those times when the supplies did so much of the work that it practically felt like cheating: i cut out the monsta...i placed the cupcake sticker on the chipboard speech bubble... (a BRILLIANT idea i stole from this set of mindy teresawa digital stickers!) ... and i trimmed this piece of sassafras paper to fit:

...and that was 99% of the card, really. ok, yeah, i hand-cut some rows of scallops, and ran my sewing machine around all those cool funky clouds, but really just to make it look like i put a little work into this thing. can't let those monstas have *ALL* the fun, now can we?! :)


(~materials~ monsta cut from paperchase giftwrap; sassafras thought bubble and patterned paper + scraps of love elsie, prima, and vintage sheet music; paperchase cupcake sticker; dymo labels; ranger glossy black cardstock; 3m foam tape, tombow monorunner, sewing machine)
