For this one I used the tree from "Merry Little Christmas" (this set is so much more than just a Christmas set!) to hang the banners from. I threaded my twine through a very sharp needle with a large eye and then sewed the twine around the branches. This worked much better than punching holes and threading the twine through the holes because you don't see any of the "excess" hole this way, it is just the perfect size. Works like a charm!
I used tea die inks around the banners to soften them up a little. After I glued the banners and mats together I added the silver rhinestones to finish them off. Then to attach them to the line, I used pop dots and lined them up with the twine. And, of course, I have to mention the twine. That is the red Maraschino twine from The Twinery...such a nice, bright red & white twine! Sigh.
This card is a little larger than a traditional card, it measures 6 1/8" x 4 1/4".
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I've been under the weather this week and am way behind on commenting on blogs, but I will try my best to get caught up between all the other events we have scheduled! Have a great weekend!
