Hello! I Finally was able to get in the craft room and prepare for my upcoming card class. The class is based on all of the many ways to use the Pennant Parade stamp set and matching Petite Pennants builder punch. We will make four cards in all and I will show them to you in a series of posts.
This new DSP Berry Blossoms is a little out of my comfort zone, but after I started using it, I actually loved how this card turned out. It is a pretty straight forward layout, the panels are 1 1/4 x 4 for the Early Espresso base, and the DSP is 1 1/8 x 3 7/8. They are layered on a plain piece of Calypso Coral. You could dress it up, but I liked how the focus went to the panels and pennants. The sentiment was stamped in early espresso using the Just Believe stamp set, and punched with the 1 3/4 circle and layered on the wisteria wonder scallop circle from the Perfect Pennants Die. A bit of early espresso satin ribbon tucked between the layers finishes it off .
The pennants were stamped then punched, and here is a tip, layer your big scallop layer first, then mount the bakers twine on, then finish of the top with the smaller punched pennant. I however did not do this, I decided after the card was done to add in the bakers twine, and it was a bit of a pain to get it stuck in there.
The inside has just a strip of Early Espresso, and the Thanks a Million stamp from the Word Play set. It is CAS, and nice and flat so it adds interest without being bulky. I hope you are inspired by this first installment of the Pennant cards, please look for more soon. Enjoy!
