Hi Everyone! =)
I had an idea to try making a banner for the up coming holiday on Thursday of last week. I put all sorts on thought into it and even tried drawing it out a bit to see how I wanted it to look.
I've never made anything like this before so I was pretty nervous about how it would turn out..
I cut everything with my CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, using summer red and blue and White Daisy card stock. I also used some SuperHero B&T paper, I just love that paper, blue with stars on one side and the strips on the other, perfect fit.=)
I cut my banner pieces at 6", lettering at 2 1/4" and my stars at 3".
I used ink and daubers, mini crystals, stamps from several sets (Sorry, I didn't think to jot down the names of the stamps, if you would like that please let me know =) I used Cornflower blue, Holiday Red and White Daisy ink pads. I also embossed several things to make them pop (the #4 Banner is embossed with the Eagle and phrase "Brave and True" I added the stars to it)! You KNOW how I like to POP! =)
To connect them I simply used yarn and knotted each piece together.
I think it turned out great! WAY better then the one in my head!
Which one(s) do YOU like best?! My Fav's are the one with the letter J and #4 on them! =)
I hope you like it and Thanks for checkin' me out! =)
