Everywhere I look lately it seems that I see banners somewhere and I have to say that I totally LOVE them! I love the different shapes and sizes and the different colors! So, that is what inspired this challenge!
My challenge is to create a card using PTI products that you have and include an "out of the box" banner somewhere on your project! What is an "out of the box" banner? It is a banner that you uniquely create, thinking outside the box, with something that is not originally designed to be a banner! So, take a look at your stamps in a new way! What can you pull out to use as a banner?
I used the Beautiful Blossoms set and coordinating die to create this banner. I die cut the shape, stamped it and then cut it out. Below is a quick tutorial to show you how I did it.
Die cut & stamped the blossom flower using the largest flower.
Cut off one tip.
What you have left is a little piece to make a banner with.
I hope you choose to play along (everyone is welcome to play)! You'll have 3 weeks to enter your card on the link on the Paper Dolls blog. I know that this might be a bit of a challenge, but I can't wait to see what all of your creative minds come up with! And, if you want to copy a banner that you have seen before, feel free to do so, it doesn't have to be your unique idea!
I've also included links to two other cards using this idea to help you get started!
