Without further ado, here is my banner:
No matter their limitations, the eyes of the kids who reside at Pediatric Specialty Care light up when given a handmade banner or card. They love the bright colors, and knowing that there are so many people from around the world care enough to send them these decorations for their rooms.
I pulled out my gypsy and started my banner. I am trying to use different shapes in my designs, so I started with these triangle banner pieces from Art Philosophy.
I used the Basic/Icon Layer function and put these triangle banner pieces on my mat at 3.82 inches. I hid the inner cuts of three of them. I welded the letters J,O and Y at 2.29, 2.10 and 2.29 inches respectively.
I cut out the banner pieces with gold cardstock and Christmas paper.
I copied the letters onto Layer 2 and cut them out with burgundy cardstock.
And here is the banner all together!
Thank you again for visiting today. I hope you're inspired to make your own Holiday Banner ... let your inner Elf emerge! Your next stop is the stunning Susan!!
...and stop back tomorrow, when ~20 different crafters will be showing their banners, and giving you more chances to win blog candy!
