It's Frosty Outside!
Hello there! Today I have a fun project to share with you. The Stampin' Royalty challenge this week is a picture challenge, so it inspired me to pull out my Christmas banner simply created kit and create a fun winter banner. Take a look at the inspiration picture, grab your provisions and create something fun!
Since "The stockings were hung by the chimney with care" I had to find another place to show you the banner. I wanted to make a "winter" banner to hang after the Christmas decorations were put away, so I picked out the word Frosty and kept it winter themed. The blues and the snowflakes in the kit make it just perfect for this.
A big word of caution though, if you would like to make a winter themed banner, you will need to pick up this kit before January 2nd, since the winter catalog will end on that day.
I will show you a close up picture of each letter so you can see each little detail.
I used a bunch of different items on this banner, especially MDS and my e-cutter. The festive flurry's were sized up and down to fit what I needed, then cut with the e-cutter. I picked out a cute font on MDS and cut those letters as well.
I sponged the Bermuda bay and pool party on the banner's first, so I didn't realize how dark they would be, if I could do it again, I would make them a lot lighter, with just a hint of color. The banners do take a few days to dry, so I think they still might lighten up.
Silver glimmer paper is definitely needed to help this banner sparkle, that and the silver ribbon are my favorite additions.
So what do you think? Will you try to do a fun winter banner? I will be very happy to hang this after the Christmas decorations come down.
Please email me if you have any questions about products that I used on this banner. All products are current available items, so they are easily found at my ONLINE STORE. Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
