I love how pendant banner cards look. They are so simple yet so pretty if done right. I made one a few weeks ago by cutting and piecing together the pendants but this time I decided to try my had at designing my own pendant in Silhouette Studio. Ack, what was I thinking?! I'm not a graphic designer! I tried anyway.
It actually wasn't too hard once I got the bowed line to look decent. Once I got that part down I created some triangles and lined them up on the bowed line. I removed the bowed line and welded the triangles together and and had my pendant! I could have left the line but I decided against it and used twine instead to *hang* it.
Here's my lovely vintage-inspired card.
I used the print and cut feature in Silhouette Studio to cut the banner. I used the Distrezz-it-All on the edges then went over it to smooth it out a little with the Tim Holtz' manual distresser. I then lightly inked the edges, pendants, and twine to give the card an aged look. I decided against a sentiment stamp this time around. I like the look of it without one plus it can be used for any occasion without a sentiment.
So what do you think of my first venture in graphic design? Not too shabby for something so basic!
