I am having a great weekend. I got to see some wonderful girl friends and I got a lot of crafting done! Yahoo!
And so, I want to share with you what I made. I created some banners (ok, 2) out of thick chipboard, and some wonderful holiday pattern paper: Christmas by Fancy Pants. Here is what they look like:
I used a variety of the pattern papers. I just love the mix of blue and red and green. Just gorgeous and festive and playful. Love it.
I cut a large scallop trim piece from one pattern paper and matted it onto cherry cobbler card stock. I machine stitched it, to give it a home-made and nostalgic look. I also used cherry cobbler card stock to create the scallop circles under the rosettes.
I created the rosettes by hand. I scored a 1" x 12" strip of pattern paper every 1/4". I stamped and heat embossed the letters in early espresso embossing powder onto shimmer white card stock. I matted the letters onto cherry cobbler card stock, and then ocean tides card stock.
I used ocean tides ribbon from Paper trey ink. I tied red vintage buttons on to each bow. I have both banners for sale in my Etsy shop HERE. Don't forget, my easy shop will be closed the day before, the day of, and the day after each craft fair.
Thank you for looking. I'll be posting more soon!
