Today is my first guest designer post over at Karel's Blog One by One the Flamingos are Stealing my Sanity! In case you didn't know, Karel has been having a month long celebration for her 55th birthday! I wanted to try my hand at something new to me and make her a birthday banner. I think it turned out pretty cute and I hope she likes it! I was able to get her banner and card into the mail on Tuesday which should make sure it reaches her house in time for her big day!
The banner pieces were cut from the Country Life Cricut cartridge at 7”. The patterned papers were all from DCWV Spring Glitter Stack and the solid pearlescent paper is by Colorbok. The ribbon used to string the banner was organza ribbon by Offray.
Karel’s trademark flamingos were cut at 4” from the Life’s a Beach cartridge
I am also entering this banner into Kristal's Getting Cricky ABC to Z challenge! Crossing my fingers that I win the new Pack Your Bags Cricut cartridge!!!
The card also has flamingo cuts from the Life’s a Beach cartridge, this time using the border feature. They were cut at 4 1/2” from Colorbok black cardstock and Colorbok pearlescent paper. The background patterned paper is from the DCWV Fun in the Sun stack. The green strip is not ribbon, even though it looks like it in the picture. In the Colorbok stacks you will find the nice strips of paper with the hole cut in the middle where they hang the stacks of paper from. I have started saving these after the 12X12 sheet of paper is removed to use as embellishments. The circle cut is an embellishment from my stash and the “happy day” looking glass embellishment is by Making Memories.
Don't forget about my first ever blog hop participation tomorrow! I know...how could you forget as often as I've been reminding you?!?! :) I'm just a little excited! Have a fabulous Friday and I hope to see you back here tomorrow!
