Monkey and Pink Bananas!!!!

I have a “Punch Art” card for you today! I made this card for my son who turned 13. (Can you spot the “13” made with bananas?!?) He always talks about “pink bananas”, so I figure I could make him a card that includes some pink bananas!!! This is what I love about making your own cards! You can personalize it for the person you want! I would never have been able to find a card with pink banana anywhere!!!

The head was made with the 1-3/4″ Circle punch and the Extra-Large Oval punch. The ears are made of the 3/4″, 1/2″ and 3/8″ Circle punch. I used the leaves from “Bird Builder” punch, at the top of the card. The body is made with the Oval Framelits and Extra-Large Oval punch. I also used the “Boho Blossom” punch for the hands. (This punch is not available anymore…)

Do you see this new Designer paper in the background? Maybe you are wondering which one is it from? This is a new DSP stack called “Pretty Petals“, found in the new catalogue on p.144. This 6″ x 6” paper includes 48 pages, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs. It fits perfectly with my monkey, don’t you think?

  1. I am trying to do this for my daughter’s Valentine’s Day party to the fancy favor box die. How did you do the mouth? Love it!

    • I think I used the 1-3/4″punch to cut the mouth, re-cut with either the same pinch or the Oval one. (I don’t remember.) for the two ends, I used the 1/2″ circle punch, recut with scissors. I hope that helps.
