One of my greatest card making pleasures, still after all these years, is being able to make cards that match the present!
A cute little friend of ours had his birthday recently and his gift was the book Piranhas Don’t Eat Bananas. My kids love it!! See it here on you tube!
Here’s Brian – the star of my card….
You’ll notice there’s not a banana in sight – because piranhas don’t eat bananas! The inspiration for the DSP came from the bananas in the Tutti Frutti pack – but I’ve used the fun stripy reverse side inside… no bananas!
Apart from his eyes (1-1/4″ circle, 1′ circle, Cookie Cutter Builder punches), the artwork is all free hand cutting – nice & rustic for this cartoon character!
His teeth are the banner from In The Trees stamp set. That’s the part I love about punch art – matching all the shapes to what I have in my Stampin’ Up! collection.
In The Trees is on the retirement list, plus the Large Number Framelits, Big on Birthdays stamp set, Tutti Frutti DSP & Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper. Make sure you get all your favourites before they are gone!
