I started by using my Sizzix Banner Pendant dies, both the Plain and Scallop sets with white cardstock and kraft paper. Then I sewed the DP onto each pennant using a zig-zag stitch.
I love the siloutte shapes on A Childs Year cartridge and decided to put one on each end, along with the little girl holding a basket in the center...all were cut at 5 inches. I shadowed all 3 images and popped them. I cut each flower three times and used Kraft paper for the final layer for a makeshift shadow as the ICON images on the ACY cart doesn't have a shadow feature. I cut the duck three times and popped each layer, then added a googly eye.
The word SPRING was cut using the Feeling Groovy cartridge and I used my all-time favorite feature on most cartridges...the shadow feature, lol! I then ran all the letters through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folders.
The butterflies are from two different MS punches and I used Viva Pearl Pens to add the pearl dots on the inside of each butterfly.
After adding a couple sequined flower embellishments onto the flowers, I ran tulle and a string of pink pearls through the holes I punched at the corner of each pendant and tied a loose knot in the tulle at each end of the banner. I think the Tulle adds softness to the banner and is perfect for hanging it too!
Here's the entire banner:
It just dawned on me that I didn't use any ink on this project...I seriously think that this is a first for me!
