Today over at SSI we are talking about banners. Instead of making a banner or even putting a banner on a card, I decided to use the Banner Framelits on a very special birthday card, for my aunt. I also used a fabulous color combo from the Color Throwdown. Check out the colors:
So not only was I inspired by those colors, I also love that mug. And I thought, hey I can do that. Here is my card:
I used the Striped Scallop Thinlit die four times and kept all the pieces and then filled them in on the white one after I glued it down on the Lost Lagoon card base. The aqua is Pool Party and I used some Gold Foil sheets which just were on the Weekly Deals, glad I stocked up! For the best cuts with this thinlit, I would use it with the Precision Base Plate. Here are some close ups:
For the banner, I layered the Whisper White onto a larger Pool Party one. The sentiment comes from the Tin of Cards stamp set and I added some extra background stamping from Timeless Textures. I also twirled some of the gold thread onto the back of the banners for some extra shine.
I knew I needed something else, and I thought a gold butterfly would be perfect. I layered it onto a vellum one. Side note, the gold foil popped right out of the thinlit with the Big Shot Die Brush. I added some pearls for the body.
Thanks so much for looking at my card today. Head back over to SSI for more banner projects.
