Today Sue is going to show us how to create a Christmas banner.
What you will need:
3 x triangles measuring base 15 cms and sides 21 cms tall.
Different spray paint and shimmers.
Hot Glue gun.
Ribbon, cord or string.
Spellbinder scallop circles.
Alphabet letters -J -O -Y.
Peel offs – Christmas stockings.
WOW embossing powder in copper and glamour glitter green
Heartfelt Creations Stamps – Rye Grass Flourishes.
Spray the triangles and an A5 piece of white cardstock with different spray inks. I used Dylusions, Colourwash, and Glow Spritz
Take an antistatic pad and wipe over the surface of the inked card. Then, stamp in Versamark, the flourish and heat emboss with copper embossing powder.
Stick the peel offs onto the dry, sprayed card then cut out.
Die cut 3 scallop circles and spray with other coloured inks and repeat step 2. Die cut a further 3 scallop circles larger that the first in dark card.
Either stamp out or draw the letters – J- O-Y- onto cardstock and again spray with inks. Heat dry. Cut these out. Stamp in Versamark the Rye Grass flourish on part of the letter and heat emboss with green litter embossing powder.
Glue the banner together with a hot glue gun, spacing everything out and using all 6 of your stockings 1-2-2-1 onto your string. It makes a lovely accent over your mantelpiece or adapt this for any occasion using different words and colours.
