I have been wanting to make a banner card ever since I saw popping up on others blogs, but didn't know if I wanted to invest in stamps and die cuts, then I was looking through my cricut cartridge the other day and in my Give a Hoot cartridge they had banners and triangles, and I thought nows the time to make one! This will be for my great niece who will be turning 6 next month, yep I am caught up with my birthday cards!!!
The letters are from my Don Juan cartridge, and I added a fiskar border punch to dress them up a bit, looking at it now I wish I would have did a little shading on the triangles. I liked the way that Beate brought her banner together on her March 19th post so I did it the same way, I used all 6 stands of floss and also tied the floss through the buttons. The buttons were originally clear so I colored them with my prismacolor markers.
The paper is K&co. and the sentiment stamp is from Stampcraft, and the brackets are from HOTP. Spellbinder die to cut the sentiment out.
I woke up to snow this morning, it is so depressing after having had the doors and windows open just 2 days ago. I heard we may get more tomorrow night, oh how I would love to have spring back again, looks like next wed. or thurs. we should be back in the 50's.
Hope your having a good day whatever your weather,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
