Clean and Layered- Banners for Three Challenges :-)

Hi Again Stampers!!

I was able to create another card this weekend and decided to go Clean and Layered (CAL) this time (a very difficult style for me :-)).

When looking for inspiration for this card, I used The Card Concept Challenge #5 Colors along with the Fusion #6 Inspiration and the FMS127 Sketch at FreshlyMade Sketches—again, I hope you will have a chance to stop by to visit all of the challenge sites to see the wonderful Design Team samples and entries!

To create this card:

Using Gumball Green Classic Ink, stamp the “Hi” and Polka Dot stamps from Banner Blast onto Whisper White cardstock and use the Banner Punch to cut out the banners.  

Repeatedly stamp the circle stamp from Lacy and Lovely using Gumball Green Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, cut two small banners with the Banner Punch and create the longer banner using the 1 ¼” Square Punch. 

Layer the long banner onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, creating the banner points using the 1 ¼” Square Punch as well and add a few scrap pieces of Gumball Green cardstock. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.   

Layer a piece of Whisper White cardstock onto Gumball Green cardstock and again onto the Early Espresso card base.  Add the Woodgrain embossed panel and the large banner per the sketch.

Punch a banner using the Banner Punch from Early Espresso Designer Series Paper (DSP) and using a Hot Glue Gun, adhere the banners to a piece of retired Hemp Twine (knotted on the ends), adhere to the front of the card.

Add the button from the retired Neutrals Collection to the upper corner of the banner per the sketch (I used a small strip of Gumball Green cardstock to the center to mimic thread) and the Rhinestone to dot the “i” on “hi” to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Banner Blast, Lacy and Lovely

Ink: Gumball Green

Paper: Whisper White, Gumball Green, Early Espresso, Early Espresso DSP

Accessories: Big Shot™, Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Punches- Banner Punch, 1 ¼” Square, Rhinestone, retired Hemp Twine, retired Neutrals Collection button

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- I hope all of you have a great week!

Fabulous card Julie! You have a keen eye for design...all your elements work beautifully together! I love the texture that you have created using the embossing folders...and I LOVE the twine clothes line (or should I say banner line!). I'm so glad that you shared your card with us this week at CCC! Hope you will stop by again next week :)
