Make It Monday #80: Making Garlands

I made a card last week using the Papertrey Ink Hello Sunshine die to make a banner, so when I saw the Make It Monday challenge and video by Ashley Cannon Newell was to make a garland,  I decided I wanted to play around with this die a little more.

A scrap of paper from the Authentique Lively pad was sitting on my desk, so I started by cutting 4 panels and folding the pointed end up to see how the pattern would look.

I really liked this, so ended up running a 1/8" strip of adhesive tape about 1/8th of an inch below the top of the triangle. I adhered a piece of thin ribbon along the top of each panel. A glue dot on the buttons is holding the tip of the triangle down.

Once I stamped my sentiment from the PTI Thanks All Ways stamp set and embossed the card base, I adhered the ribbon at the back of the panel. The garland pieces and ribbon are not adhered to the front of the embossed panel - they are hanging loose.

Another sentiment from the same set was stamped on a fifth die cut and adhered with dimensional foam adhesive to lift it above the base.

I wasn't really feeling the card was finished, so ran a thin line of Stickles along the garland pieces and the triangle sentiment die cut.

Because I like the way the triangle sentiment panel is pointing to the "thanks", I am also entering this card in the Moxie Fab World Movement Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. I love what you did here. It makes good use of all those double sided papers, doesn't it? I am really tempted to go get that die, now!

  2. They look like litte diapers! Would be a cute baby card. heehee

  3. Hey Jacquie! Thanks for linking this up to the Movement Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
