Happy October! This is June Houck of Simply Elegant Paper Crafts. I am thrilled to be a guest designer today here at My Craft Spot. Kimberly invited me to create a card using her Tiny Banners and Toppers dies. YOU can win a My Craft Spot stamp set of your choosing by leaving a comment on my blog post stating your favorite My Craft Spot stamp set.
My card: I chose my papers first and the "HB2U" stickers. I cut all my layers; I cut the jumbo pennant by hand. I added two black eyelets to my jumbo pennant and some twine. Finally I die cut my tiny banners and their shadows by laying a strip of kraft card stock and a strip of black card stock over the dies and using painter's tape to hold the paper strips in place before rolling through my Big Shot. Yep, I made all of these little banners in just one trip through my Big Shot!
Look at all of these great little dies:
The larger banners can be used on their own or as shadows behind the smaller banners. The banners also have toppers...how cool is that? I used the larger banners (black card stock) as shadows behind the smaller (kraft card stock):
They cut beautifully! I love that.
