Banners, Banners Everywhere

Today the Penny Black design team have been asked to create cards that incorporate banners, you can check out the other designers cards here.

I made a clean and simple banner card, using some old scraps of patterned paper and the banner from the Transparent set 'Sweet Wishes' 30-104.

The banners were embossed with detail black powder, wrapped around some twine and adhered to the card, the sentiment was stamped with versa fine black ink and the card finished off with a few gems and a border drawn with a fine liner pen.

So quick and simple!

Hope you are having a lovely week!

It might have been quick & simple but the idea is brilliant & so effective. The black embossing is striking against the white & the bright colours really celebratory.

I agree with Paula, your simple idea is very effective and the way the side pennants extend beyond the card is a nice finishing touch.

These banners are so striking hanging across the white card! A very happy greeting indeed!
