For todays highlight projects I’ve created this bananas card, where I’ve combined the Zodiac Monkey with the vines from Swinging Borders.
I started off by stamping and coloring my Zodiac Monkey, then cut it out using the matching die.
Then I placed him on a piece of Neenah cardstock and used him to figure out where I wanted the swinging borders. I wanted him to overlap a little with each side. I also made sure there was a nice spot for the Bananas sentiment on the bottom half.
Then I colored in the vines and cut along them with a pair of scissors to create a fun window. I stamped a whole bunch of bananas directly on my cardbase with a light grey ink for a softer effect, and then colored them in with some really light colors. Since I really wanted to make the window stand out, I adhered the vine pieces and monkey with some foam tape for some dimension.
This could also be really fun to turn into a shaker window by die cutting even more bananas!
