Banner Unity Challenge & Dollar Days are HERE!

Hi there fellow paper crafters!  Tonight I am sharing a fun card I made for the Unity Stamps Challenge 'Pennants & Banners.' 

I decided to use a pennant banner stamp from one of my favorite stamp sets "A Simple Christmas" by Unity & Simple Stories.  There is so much detail in the stamp from the sleigh ride and the postage stamp.  LOVE it!  To give the stamped pennant banner some more pizazz, I added some rhinestones and some patterned paper cutouts. I could have gone really simple, but just love adding these little details. 

To create the lettering, I used an alphabet die by Papertrey Ink.  I put the 'BE' part on the pennant banner and created a banner for 'MERRY.'  Tip: To create a perfect 'V' cutout at the end of your banners, use the corner of a square punch - I use the corner of the tag punch by Stampin' Up! which is slightly larger than a 90 degree angle.

Other supplies include: Papers by My Mind's Eye, Twine by Papertrey Ink, and Rhinestones by Creative Charms. 

Make sure to enter the Unity Challenge.  One of my favorite paper crafters, Thienly from Mod Paperie is hosting the challenge and the pennant banner she created is just beautiful!
