If you have lost your way and you want to follow the trail then hop over to the High Hopes Blog and that will help you get back on track!!
Now on to my post!!! I used "Monty" (the Monster) and the "Wild Party" stamps for this one!! I just love Monty--he reminds me of Sully from Monsters Inc. which is by far my favourite Pixar cartoon!! Isn't he adorable!!
As soon as I saw this stamp, I knew immediately that my first time using him for a card would involve a door of some sort. Jules and I were out shopping for a "door" and she found this funky Cuttlebug folder which reminded us of the doors in Monsters Inc.
I rigged up a paper hinge and then used fun foam for the doorjamb. I used my retangular nestabilities to make the frame, "bolted" it all together with some brads, recessed a magnet piece in the foam and then added another magnet to the actual door so it would stay closed.
I popped Monty up on a 3-D spring I made out of paper so he'd pop out when you open the door.
Here's a look at the wild party going on inside the card!
And a closer look at the art...
