Banner Card

Hi Everybody,

I have a lovely little card with a big banner on it to share with you.

I made it to suit the sketch at Create with Connie and Mary. I took their advice when they suggested we make the card smaller than normal so that the whole thing, banner and all will fit in an envelope. It worked!

The sentiment is a retired Stampin’ Up set and I usually only use it one line at a time, but it kinda looked good like this and focused on one subject – love! one thing I do love – it’s my Fancy Flower Punch. I used it here with the designer paper and some pearls. Looks wonderful all distressed with ink and crumpled up.

The Finial Press embossing folder was used on the other end of the sentiment card and sponged over with Soft Suede ink, as were all the distressed edges you can see. Victoria Lace was adhered to the centre of the banner to give it a vintage look and Pearls on the flower were along the same theme.

I think I’ll also share this card at Crazy 4 Challenges, because I have been a bit Crazy lately, for challenges that is! It also fits the colours of their inspiration challenge nicely!

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon.
