This is so totally CASEd from Renee O. but as soon as I saw her card, I knew it was perfect for a friend's birthday. I made this card and then an additional 8 notecards using other stamps from the Monkey Business set. The scan doesn't show it very well but the garden green outside and inside have the Monkey Business vines across it (I guess you'd call it subtle?). To change the black gingham ribbon, I ran it through the Basic Brown ink pad.

Hey Priscilla, to make the popup, take a small strip of cardstock and fold it into a rectangle with an extra flap. Then attach it to the inner fold of the card. I made mine in two pieces. The monkey is on one strip and his message is on another strip glued on top of the first. Each strip was 3/4" wide by 5" long. I scored each at 1.5", 2", 3.5", and 4", leaving a 1" tab. I glued the 1" tab to the rectangle and really folded it back and forth so I knew it would "pop" up. I then glued it into the fold with a 1.5" side glued to the back and a .5" side glued to the front. I then glued the monkey to that rectangle, making sure his feet were slightly above the bottom of the popup. I then glued the second popup on top of the first, again with the 1.5" side glued to the back and a .5" side glued to the top of the first popup. Then glued the message to that. Be very, very careful that the top popup doesn't show when the card is closed. I had to trim 1/8" off the top.
