Let’s start with cutting all our papers. Cut a piece of kraft card stock to 8 1/2″ tall by 5 1/2″ wide score and fold at 4 1/4.” Cut a piece of white card stock to 4″ tall by 5 1/4″ wide. Cut a piece of kraft card stock to 1″ tall by 5 1/4″ wide. Cut another piece of kraft paper to 4 1/4″ tall by 5 1/2″ wide.

On the white card stock, stamp the Mini Monkey in bark, the Mini Lion in topaz, the Tiny Monkey in pinecone, and the Tiny Lion in topaz.

Dry emboss a small piece of white card stock, then stamp the Mini Monkey in bark and the Tiny Monkey in pinecone. Brush embossed area with topaz ink pad. Let dry completely. Once dry, apply Glossy Accents per the instructions on the container. Set aside to dry. Once dry, glue to a small piece of black card stock, then cut, leaving about 1/8″ border.
Glue stamped white card stock to the kraft card base. Apply “Happy Birthday” sticker to kraft strip, glue to the stamped card stock. Wrap the ribbon and twine around the card and secure on the inside with clear tape. Attach medallion in the center over ribbon and twine with 3-D tape. Glue the piece of kraft card stock to the inside of the card to cover the ribbon and twine. And you’re done!
