Here's my card featuring Stampotique's Flying Monkey (Janet Klein) and Towering Gifts (Daniel Torrente).

Flying Monkey was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts), colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, edged with a Black Pitt Artist pen (Faber Castell), and set aside.

Towering Gifts was stamped several times with Tuxedo Black Memento inks. One version was colored with Copics, fussy-cut, and edged. I fussy-cut several of the gifts from the other Towering Gifts stampings, colored them, and edged them. The separate gifts were adhered on top of the full image using dimensional foam adhesive.

Then I got all fiddly. I thought I had a mesh fruit bag in my stash, but apparently I had used it. So I had to go with Plan B. A length of tulle was cut, folded over, and the edges were sewn together badly as I am a horrible seamstress. The upside is that I didn't bleed on the tulle. The Towering Gifts were inserted into the tulle bag, which was tied with red and white Baker's twine.

White cardstock was die-cut with the Puffy Clouds die (Die-namics). Red cardstock was die-cut with the Naughty or Nice die (Cottage Cutz) and Merry Christmas from the Merry, Happy, Christmas, Birthday set (All Occasions).

The clouds were detailed with Copic markers, then adhered to a card front. The sentiments, Flying Monkey, and the sack of Towering Gifts were adhered to the card front. An additional bit of Baker's twine was looped around Flying Monkey's paw and the top of the Towering Gifts sack. The card front was edged with Picket Fence Distress ink (Ranger), then adhered to a #10 card.

You get to decide if Flying Monkey is naughty or nice. Is he stealing the gifts or bringing them somewhere!
