Happy Friday! I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but it is unseasonably warm (mid-70's) here in Central Virginia and it's a little hard to believe Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away. With Christmas just 7 weeks away, it's not too soon to get started on your holiday crafting. In that light, Jennifer asked us to design holiday banners this week for our Fabulous Friday projects over on the Sisters in Stamping blog. I created this mini banner to hang on the back of my monitor at work.
Here is a close up of the center of my banner - don't you love the little elf in this image? I colored the elf's boots and hat with a lemon-lime twist marker and the pants with real red. I don't think you can see it, but I also used my Wink of Stella to add glimmer to the feather in the cap and on the boots. And the rhinestones added some extra fun bling.
This photo of the back of the panel shows how I strung it - I attached a circle tab to the back and threaded the ribbon through. Because the panels slid, I had to tie each with a bit of baker's twine to hold them in place.
Here's one more look at my banner. I used the Stitched Shapes and Layering Ovals framelits with my Big Shot to cut out each off the banner panels and the "J" and "Y" were cut using the Large Letters thinlits. Thanks to my Big Shot this project came together pretty easily!
