Merry banner card

I think I have been bitten by the Christmas in July bug. I saw this adorable card and instantly thought Christmas card. Plus I just got a box of CTMH goodies and this is a sneaky peak at the new Christmas papers. Pretty pretty! Love the colors. Not quite traditional but not so far off, I really love them.

This one is stamped with CTMH Tulip ink and has brown bakers twine bows.

This one is stamped with CTMH Olive ink and as red bakers twine bows. I can't pick a favorite.

The embossed edge uses a new SU! embossing folder and the little tan punched flowers are made with the SU! mini punch. The bling is CTMH sparkles that I colored with a Copic marker.
My banners are made with .75 x 1.5 inch strips of paper, I then punched the ends with SU! heart trio punch.

My friend Tina taught me to put the end of the paper into the top part of the heart to punch a curved end rather than the standard V cut shape. Thanks Tina, I love this little detail.

Find inspiration everywhere! Go... Create something fun & fabulous. Enjoy!
