Day 1: Card-A-Day Challenge | Banner Card

Just finished Day 1 of my Card-A-Day Challenge!!! Wahoo... feels great getting it checked off my list. :) Today's challenge was to make a Banner Card.

{*Click photo to view larger}

I got out my Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart and cut out a variety of banners using the Laughing Lola Paper Pack. I cut them in sizes ranging from 1" for the shorter wider ones to 2 1/2" for the long skinny banners. I kept it clean and simple using a white card base and layered/staggered them across the top, adhering them with a Bonding Memories Adhesive Pen. Then cut off the zip strip off the top of one of the Laughing Lola papers. If you're not familiar with the zip strip... our Close To My Heart B&T Duos Paper is 12" x 12" and then there is an extra little strip in a different pattern that goes across the top. You can cut it off and use it on your cards, layouts, etc. Love using them and having an additional pattern in addition to the 6 that come in the paper pack. So once I had that cut, I adhered it across the top of my card.

Now as I mentioned in a previous post (here) I'm trying to get stocked up on more birthday and thank you cards so this little mini Heartfelt Birthday Wish stamp set was perfect for this card. I was able to keep it clean and simple by just stamping it in black ink in the corner and then used the new One Way Borders stamp set to add the chevron arrow to make the birthday sentiment stand out even more.

Love this card. I love all the different colored banners. Thanks for sharing your creations with us for a full month. I have been wanting to try this; but was afraid I couldn't find the time to do it. Have a great day! Hugs, Gloria
