Baby Banner Cards...

ETA: For my dear friend Michelle and anyone else who might be interested, the letters on the banner are from the Storybook-Cricut Cartridge. I found mine on clearance at Wal-mart several months back...I'm not sure if they even carry it anymore? Punch on the card is UPPER CREST by Fiskars.


It's been a while since I've had a request for a banner, but this one is for a baby shower and then will later be displayed in the baby's room. The only requirement for the banner is that it be in a black/bubblegum pink/lime green combo.
Once I had my design determined, I just started an assembly line with stamping and embellishments. Each card matte measures 5x7 and then each top matte is a 1/4 inch smaller to allow for each border to pop in color. The background here is Damask Designs with hot pink dot accents.
I used my Cricut Expressions to cut the letters out in pink and black. Now, I had all this put together but something felt like it was missing. The black letters just weren't as defined as I'd liked them to be, so I got this crazy idea to hand draw a dotted border! Tedious?!! YES!! But so worth it! I LOVE IT! I also received my new Tag Die from Papertrey Ink that was "die-ing" to be used! Also dusted off A Little Argyle for the background.

Hey Girlfriend! Super cute banner! What is the cartridge you used for the letters? A friend from church just found out she's going to be a Grandma again and I want to make one of these for the shower..
