Retired Color Banner Card
I am just getting around to posting my swap card from May. I saw something similar to this card on E-bay (of all places). You know, one of those 'kits' that includes all the ingredients to make 5 or so cards. The buyer just has to put the cards together. If I remember correctly that E-bay card had flowers instead of stars & I don't recall the paper, but the sketch is basically the same although I think I switched up the lengths of the banners.
I used this past year's retiring In Colors Designer Papers. (Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Concord Crush, & Blushing Bride). The banners are 1 inch wide & I cut a layer that was 5 inches wide by 3.75 inches long. It was easy then to lay my five one inch strips down with precision. Then I popped the whole panel up on dimensions. It took quite a while to make 12 cards, but the ladies seemed to really like this one.
Have a great day! Hugs, Marilyn
