Monkey Puzzle Card with Valentine Monkey from Sanqunetti design

Monkey Puzzle Card by janet Packer (Craftingquine.blogspot.co.uk), subtracting a puzzle piece from the card blank. SVG designs by Lori Whitlock and Sanqunetti Design.

There are several new SVG cutting file release this week from Sanqunetti Design.  I picked this cheeky Valentine Monkey SVG file.

Card Base

Initially I made the 6" x 6" card base adding the Square Puzzle by Lori Whitlock from the Silhouette Design Store. This file splits into all the individual puzzle pieces and I cut two sets of puzzles, one in red and one in duck egg cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo. I then subtracted one piece from the top right of the card base before mounting the coloured pieces using the colours alternately.  

The Monkey

I made the monkey up into a card topper omitting the heart. All the remaining pieces were cut from coloured cardstock except the whites in the monkey's eyes which were drawn in with a white gel pen.  I took a copy of the cut away puzzle piece and shrank it, subtracting the shape of the monkey's paw.  This was cut from red cardstock and added to the monkey with a dimensional foam pad.

I love changing up files like this.  The monkey could hold any small item and be used for all kinds of occasions - not just for Valentine's.
