After watching Dawn's Flagged Borders tutorial at Capture the Moment for this week's Make It Monday challenge I made this quick card.
The flags are cut with my Sketched Shapes dies - I know this isn't a whole border of banners, but I wanted to highlight the "#1".
Did you recognize the design? Yes, I am submitting a second card to CAS(E) this Sketch! this week.
My next card is possibly the cleanest & simplest card I have ever made. The Muse over at CASE Study is Maile Belles and this *perfect* card.
My card took a ridiculously long time to make as I played with different banners and sentiments, designer papers and layout, but I am really happy with the final version.
In the end I mixed things up, using a Papertrey Ink banner die with a WPlus9 sentiment, older Echo Park paper and Studio Calico wood veneers. My husband is a great dad to our two kids and that is what I wanted to highlight.
Can I push the boundaries a bit to add this card to the CASual Fridays Challenge to create a congratulations card?
I always think of these wood people as "homies". Many years ago we were waiting for my husband to arrive at a small airport in Canada. My son was just learning to read and thought it was very funny that the restroom was signed "Men/Hommes" which he read as "men" and "homies".
Thanks for stopping by,
