banner inspiration challenge at the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog!
I keep meaning to make a really fun banner card but haven't gotten around to it. But instead of taking advantage of this excellent opportunity to do a card, I decided to continue a Christmas banner that I started last year.
Having never made a banner before, I didn't know what I was getting in to...
After a few stumbles with the lettering, my project was late! Here is my currently-unembellished banner...
Perhaps I'll finish this in time for Christmas!? ;)
I used the Birthday Bash cartridge with my Cricut to cut the pennants. The Blackletter cartridge, which I used for the lettering, is free on your Gypsy, along with several other cartridges, plus the exclusive Smiley Cards, Gyspy Wanderings and Gypsy Font "cartridges."
I inked around the pennants with Aged Mahogany and Pine Needles Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
I used my Xyron to adhere the letters to their shadows. I love my Xyrons!
I adhered the ribbon and bows with Scor-tape. Scor-tape also turned out to be an excellent way to adhere the project to the wall!
Take a peek at what the other DT members cooked up!
