I just love love love making banners, it's a free form to create with so many textures, colors, and designs. I try to never make two that are alike.
In the past few months I've made several for people. Each and every one is unique to that person in one way or another. I recieved an order for a banner from a friend at work and I was over the moon excited about it. The request was simple... blue, purple, and sunflowers for Trisha.
Wait... say that again, blue, purple, and sunflowers?!? That is exactly what my wedding was based around and I coudn't wait to start planning this banner.
As hard as it was to let this one go, I know Trisha was just as excited about it as I was to get the order.
I cut the scalloped square from art philosophy from the blue page DCWV glitter pack
the rounded edge squares also from art philosophy on recollections cream cardstock
I chalked the edges of the rounded edge square with yellow
Then embossed with the small polka dot folder through my cuttlebug
I cut out the letters from art philosophy on a plum colored purple from DCWV shimmer pack
The sunflowers are actually Jolee stickers, which I felt were perfect for the feel I was working on
I topped each letter off with clear rhinestones using my irock
Then all of the letters were tied together using two sheer ribbons one blue and one yellow
I hope you're in love as much as Trisha and I am with how this came out.
