I had so much going on this weekend between holiday fun and crafting projects that I am worn out! To appease my craft addiction last night I decided to make things simple. I tried out something I have been wanting to do forever now, make a birthday banner card. I really have no reason as to why I haven't done it before. It's the easiest thing ever. Hmm, maybe because I didn't have any twine, maybe because I am always trying to be too detailed, maybe because I am always trying new techniques. Either way, it was time to go simple. Sometimes I overthink projects and get things all jumbled up when really a simple classic card could work just as good or even better.
This card took just minutes to throw together. I played with the files in Silhouette Studio and found these lovely banner flags free. I used twine from Trendy Twine to hang the multi-colored banners on. Actually, they aren't hanging. Each banner is secured to the paper using a small pop up square to give the illusion they are hanging. I stamped the sentiment in red. I would have rather used a stamp that had the letters much smaller and in a straight line but I didn't have any that were plain. I was going for the plain, classic, simple is more look.
If I had better picture-taking skills I think the image would have come out clean and crisp showing the contrast of the colorful flags against the white card. Well, that's a project for another time!
.....pssst, check out Trendy Twine. I love their colors!
