I knew I had banner dies big enough to hold them so I started with the idea of three simple banners on a horizontal card, but as I started playing with colors and patterns, I came up with this random grouping of banners. I pulled out my favorite bright color combo - bright orange, turquoise and green (the green is a scrap from Doodlebug Design's At the Zoo 6x6 pad) which all pops particularly well on kraft. I cut a variety of banners and adhered them with different thicknesses of dimensional adhesive.
The background was first embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder - I picked that because I needed a simple, small pattern and I thought it looked a bit like fencing! I also had matching enamel stars to give it even more of a celebratory look.
They do look happier!! This is really cute Kim. I like the layered banners and happy colors. Very cute card!ReplyDelete

I so know how that is...I've got a set that needs ink, but haven't had the time lately! These are mighty cute critters, Kim. Perfect colors for your banners, and that 'fencing' embossing folder is perfect for this zoo! You always make such fun cards! Hope all is well with you. BevReplyDelete

Yes, your critters look much happier, now that they've had a play date! Such fun to place them on the banners; I'm especially taken with the 'jungle' leaves...ReplyDelete
