Pretty in Pink Spring Banner

Happy Spring Everyone!  I wanted to make a banner for my Spring Home and Garden Expo display and this is what I came up with.  I was so busy at the Expo I forgot to take pictures there, so I displayed it on my Baker’s Rack at home.  I think I’ll keep it there on display for my Open House next month (May 15).  I used Pretty in Pink, Crumb Cake and Whisper White cardstock.  The Big Shot makes banner making quite easy. The cardstock is folded in half and placed on the Pennant Die and run through the Big Shot.  When you pull it out, open it up and you have a full-sized pennant for your banner.  I love vintage so I used the “Bliss” stamp set once again. The flowers were made with the Fun Flowers die, sponged with ink, layered and secured with a Vintage brad in the center.  The brad also secured it to the end of each pennant section.  I put Jumbo Eyelets in each side of the pennant sections and grouped them together with Pretty in Pink 5/8″ satin ribbon.  Here is a closeup of one of the pennant sections.  The lettering for “Spring” was made using the “Serif Essentials Alphabet” die.  I mounted each letter on a Crumb Cake oval cut from the Oval Scallop Frame and then popped them up on the center of each pennant.  The possibilities are endless with this die – birthdays, holidays or just about any celebration. You would definitely get your money’s worth out of this die!
