Happy Birthday Banner
I got some A-dorable new stamps from Purple Onion Designs - the Build-A-Banner set - you can see all the new stamps here. I had a couple of special people (i needed to make cards for) in mind when I got them.
Today is my niece-in-law's birthday - and here's the card. I should mention it's a folding card - 3 panels - seemed to work when one is going to have a big old banner across the whole darned card! I wanted to take a picture of it but it was too dark (AND late) when i finished gluing it all down so you'll have to imagine okay?
I used some Hippie Chick paper from SEI (yes it's double-sided). I colored the banner pieces using prismacolors. I added embroidery floss and some flower brads to finish it off. I think she'll like it :-)
Edited to add: I totally forgot to mention that I used versamark to stamp on the letters - Alpha stamps are Purple Onion Designs Garamouche Small - then used clear embossing powder; followed by coloring the banner pieces with prismacolor pencils - then I used the MCPT technique - voila - white letters!) i really must stop trying to write up these posts when I'm tired..... oy!
