Sock Monkey Valentine's Day card





This a another fun card using the Sock Monkey stamp set. I just love paper piecing with this set. One thing about paper piecing is that you need good scissors like the SU paper snips!! When you cut, cut back deep into the scissors--don't cut using the tips. When you cut using the tips, it's not as smooth and is more choppy. Anyway, that's my tip :)



For this card, I used the Thoroughly Modern designer series paper. I love that the colors are not too girly, let it's still got enough to be suitable for Valentines. I think it will be a perfect card for anyone.
