Here it is:
It's going to be to a gorgeous 10-yr old girl.
The deets - all produccts from Stampin Up, except for the border die (Tim Holtz)
inks: Blushing Bride, Regal Rose
Stamps: Punch Bunch (owl), Medallion
Punches: 2-step owl, 1 3/4" scallop (wings)
DSP and Cardstock from SU
I've never done pennant banners before and I think it's the perfect thing to 'lift' the card. Doesn't it just look joyful? Well, it does to me. DSP used was just from scrap and it's amazing what a little bit can do.
Quick Technique/Tip to get matching twine: (sorry, can't remember where I got this from but it's not exactly rocket science so will not worry too much about attribution here)
- Get some plain white twine.
- Run it over the stamp pad, with a paddle pop stick (or plastic ruler) to keep it down
- Turn twine and keep running through until inked up as desired
Super-easy. Super-quick. Perfect match!
Note: if you use a clean plastic ruler, you can excess ink on the pad again, wipe it dry with a rag and you have less waste. How green is that? ;)
In the spirit of sharing, here's a farewell card I made. It's going to be from the whole IT department (where I belong) so there's lots of owls. Fun.
This card is a big A5 size. I also put in a piece of copy paper, attached via a rustic twine to give plenty of room to write well wishes. I also popped a few owls using dimensionals. I had the owl punch and stamp out from above so the it just kinda flowed on to this. Yet, how different do they look?
