Wild Bananas

Wild Bananas

Wild Bananas was a Color Combination Challenge on SCS last January. Everybody was making cards with Wild Wasabi, Barely Banana, and Blue Bayou. I happened to have Designer Series paper with two of these colors, so that’s what I used on my entry. I took one 4-3/4″ by 3-1/2″ piece of double-sided DS paper and cut it in half using a Coluzzle and a hobby blade. I flipped over one half to reveal the other design, and it fit perfectly inside the other half.

I had seen how Janine Tinklenberg was adding DS paper to her punched photo corners, and I gave that a try. The circular birthday sentiment from Circle of Friendship was stamped twice, once on Whisper White and once on Barely Banana card stock. The inside words were punched out with a 1/2″ circle punch. I also punched 1/16″ holes in every scallop, and added little accents (sometimes called faux eyelets) to the holes with my white gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by!
