Cookie Monster Birthday

“C” is for cookie! This is the tenth card in my birthday series! Love this cute little cookie monster card! I grew up watching Sesame Street when I was little and it was still around for my kids!  Now that I have a grandchild I will have to check on whether or not the show is still around for him to enjoy! Well…since my grandson is only 4 months old, it may be awhile before he starts watching TV.  In any event, I saw this cute little design from a post on pinterest and knew that I just had to try and re-create it!  
 I began with a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of pacific point cardstock (scored at 5 1/2 on the 11″ side). Using a 4 1/2″ scalloped circle die, I placed the folded cardstock on the die leaving a bit of the die exposed (see picture on the right). Make sure that the fold is positioned over the die as shown. This is important because when you run this through the big shot the die will not cut the parts of the cardstock that are exposed (as shown). This will leave you a nice fold on the top of cookie monster’s head! 🙂   
Once you have your cookie monster card base, embellish it using a variety of circle punches.  For the whites of the eyes, the 1 1/4” circle punch is perfect…then use the 3/4” circle punch to add the black pupils of the eyes. Cookie monster‘s mouth is made from a 3 1/2” circle dieI simply took a black piece of cardstock and covered up approximately 3/4 of the die (similar to the pic above). You want cookie monster’s mouth to be a little larger than half of the circle so you can play around with placement of your paper to achieve that look! It was a super simple card to make!  I hope you enjoy it!
