I’ve got a few Christmas cards that I plan to share in the coming weeks.
My first card I am sharing is my first ever banner card.
I really love Judy’s card here and wanted to do something similar with vellum and patterned paper. I first ran an impression plate on my card panel. I then die cut a window in the middle of the panel. I used the light blue snowflake patterned papers from the Penny Black Madison collection behind the vellum. I then stamped and clear embossed three of the small banner stamps from Christmas Banners (40-253) with different colored ink.
Since this was my first time making a banner card, I had a hard time figuring out how to add the banners to my rope. It took longer than necessary realizing I should just adhere the banners to the rope and figure out how to “hang” it on the card.
Once I figured that out, I added sequins to the top and added a small gem to the center of the center of each banner. I finished the card off with a sentiment from City Lights (40-270).
Until next time!
