Greetings, Blogland! I hope everyone is having a lovely week. I wanted to share a card that I made today using Nichole Heady's paper banner technique. I love the little paper banners. Seriously. Love them. And I wanted to try my hand at putting one together.
I started by cutting a 5 1/2" square Rustic White base (the closest you'll see me coming to cream cardstock). Then I stamped the leaves and filled in with a few flowers. I die cut a Mat Stack 5 shape from Kraft cardstock and stamped the woodgrain image before adhering it straight to my base. Next I took a strip of Sweet Blush cardstock and stamped one side with the small houndstooth background and stamped the front side with my sentiment. You can see Nichole's "how-to" video on her blog. I finished the card by adhering the banner in place. Super simple and such a fun, new technique to pull me out of my typical rut.
Speaking of ruts...did anyone notice something missing? Foam tape. That's right. Nary a piece of foam tape to be found. Watch out, Chicken Little. The sky just might be falling.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. See you again soon!
