So many of the little critters from the stamps have great smiles, so I cut the word 'SMILE' out of a card base and had some of the smiley creatures popping through the letters.
I LOVE the laughing hippo. And the toucan is so cheery. The monkey is adorable - I thought about cutting him down so that he wouldn't stick out past the edge of the card, but realized that he makes the card look like it's saying, 'Smile, I Love You.' so I left him in one piece (so happy I did!).
Once I got all of their placements figured out, I stamped the chevrons onto a piece of cardstock and popped the smile piece on top. Then finished it off by layering it on a piece of black cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by!
