Banner Birthday

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge -> #21 – colors.

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #21

And here is my take:

by Karen @ Carefree Creations: Birthday Banner

I wasn’t sure what to do at first, but I knew I liked the color combination. So, as I do when I’m stumped, I went to my index. When I spotted my Hearts a Flutter set, I knew I had the card.

The stripped banner pieces are taped onto the card base, but only along the top edge – and the bottom bits are “fluffed” to add dimension. (“Fluffed” just means curling the edges without bending the card stock.) The wave-pattern banner pieces are adhered with dimensionals. I glued the twine in place.

My card base is a regular A2 size, so this will need to be hand-delivered or mailed in a larger envelope to accommodate those overhanging banner pieces.

Make sure you check out the other design team members:

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

  1. Love the fact that you used the blue as your base. That banner looks fab, fluttering in the breeze – must be the fluffed ends!
