Birthday Banners


The challenge at The Paper Players is to make a CAS project featuring banners.



The challenge at Runway Inspired Challenge is to create a project from this inspiration photo:



I paired the colours of the outfits and the runway and made them into banners using a Sizzix tag die set.    Some of the banners are textured, and some of them are shiny.  Because the smaller tag die has a hole in it, I threaded some knitted ribbon through to mimic the shoelaces.  I added some diamond bling to lead the eye from the banner row to the birthday row, because they didn't look like they belonged with each other.

Sentiment and brackets are Woodware FRCL069 Large & Small Greetings.

  1. Love the ribbon threaded through the banners. Also love that stencilled tiles behind your bold sentiment ... mimics the design on the floor from Runway photo.

  2. Wow Shirley! Great composition! Love how you picked up the details of the photo and incorporated them into your card: shoelaces, the bling to effectively move the eye down and the splash of yellow for the murse (isn't that what they call a man purse?). Sweet!
