Pennant Parade Thank You

I’m sharing a card that I made for you all today!  I wanted to say a great big THANK YOU to everyone who’s been following along as I navigate through this blogging thing.  I really appreciate that you take the time to check out what I make every day and that you leave me such wonderful comments.  I made this card using the Pennant Parade and Friendly Phrases stamp sets from Stampin’ Up.

I started with a card base of Cherry Cobbler cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″.  Then I cut the background panel from Very Vanilla to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and I used the Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate to emboss the background panel (you could also use your Chevron Embossing Folder for a little more bold look).  Then I stamped the Thank U sentiment from the Pennant Parade stamp set four times in VersaMark ink on Very Vanilla Card Stock and I sprinkled two with Gumball Green Stampin’ Emboss Powder and two with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Emboss Powder and I heat embossed all 4 images.  Then I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the dashed pennant around the sentiment using Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler ink.  I punched out the pennants using the Petite Pennant Builder Punch.  I also used that punch to punch out the large pennants from Be of Good Cheer DSP and I adhered those to the stamped images.  Next, I placed the pennants so that one corner was slightly overlapping and I pierce the corner through both pennants at once and placed a Silver Mini Brad to attach them together.  On the far left and far right pennants, I pierced the Very Vanilla panel and the pennant and used a brad to attach the pennant string to the background.  The pennants are hanging loose so they can be moved around a little.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Friendly Phrases stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla Card Stock and I punched it out using the Extra-Large Oval Punch.  I punched a Decorative Label Punch from Cherry Cobbler Card Stock and I adhered the two punches together.  I added a strip of rhinestones above the sentiment.  To finish the card, I used the paper-piercing tool and Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack stencil to pierce around the outside of the Decorative Label Punch.  Then I adhered the Modern Label/Extra Large Oval punches to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the card front to the Cherry Cobbler card base with SNAIL Adhesive.

This was a quick card to put together, I hope that you like it!  And I hope that you’re all able to enjoy some time with family and friends today.  Have a Merry Christmas!
