Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Stamping Friends Holiday Hop! Can you believe that (in the US) Thanksgiving is next week?!? How did we reach the end of November so quickly?!?!? With all that is going on with COVID, my husband and I have decided to stay home alone. But, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a festive banner to hang.
Each pennant of this Thanksgiving banner is made using Cajun Craze CS and then a layer of the GORGEOUS Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper was placed over that. Each pennant was manually “flagged” the end using the paper snips.
I used the Playful Alphabet Dies to die cut the letters for “Happy Thanksgiving” and the Layering Circle Dies were used to cut the circles.
The letters and circles are alternates of Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Mint Macaron CS and then mixed and matched.
The larger circles are adhered to the banner pennant using Stampin’ Seal and the second circle is added with stampin’ dimensionals. Since I used Adhesive Sheets on the back of the CS I used for the letters, all I had to do was peel off the backing and adhere the letters as stickers. Easy peasy.
At the top of each pennant, I punched a hole on either side using a 1/4″ circle punch and used the 1/4″ Cinnamon Cider ribbon to string it all up. Overall, I was pretty happy with how it came out, but I think I’m gonna go back and add some die cut leaves to the blank pennants.
For my card, I used a 11″ x 4-1/4″ card based scored at 5-1/2″ and then cut 2″ off of the bottom front of the card base and rounded the corners.
To finish off the top, I added a 4″ x 3-1/4″ layer of Gilded Autumn DSP (I also rounded the corners on this piece) and wrapped a piece of the Early Espresso Suede Trim all the way around. I used a second piece of ribbon (and my bow maker tool) to make the bow and attached that with glue dots.
For the sentiment, I stamped the word “thanks” from the Many Mates stamp set in Early Espresso ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS and punched it out using the 1-1/2″ punch. This is then attached it to a piece of Early Espresso CS that had been punched out using the Label Me Lovely Punch using stampin’ dimensionals and the label is attached to the card front (as seen in the photo) using Stampin’ Seal.
Inside the card started with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS with a 4″ x 2-1/4″ piece of DSP added to the bottom. (This is actually the other side of the DSP used on the top of the card. The inside sentiment is also from the Many Mates stamp set and is also stamped in Early Espresso ink. This fold is new to me, I like it! Do you want more holiday inspiration?
