Fresh Prints and Banners!

Have you tried the new Banner Framelits from the Spring/Occasions Catalog?  They weren't on my first order because I thought "I can cut my own banners".  However, after using these, I'm totally sold!  They quickly produce perfect and consistent banners of layered sizes with no more trimming to try to get my ends even and all that angst!  I've been using these framelits a lot and I'm SO GLAD I bought them!  

Today's card is a combination of Real Red, Whisper White and Crumb Cake, taking my cue from the Fresh Prints Paper Pack in the Occasions Catalog.  I used three of the six Banner Framelits to cut the papers; there is one larger and two smaller banners in the collection.  The small "hello" banner is from the Perfect Pennants stamp set and is cut by hand.

I wrapped Chevron Ribbon layered with 1/4" Stitched Red Ribbon around the banners, added a bit of Victorian lace tied with the Silver Baker's Twine (Occasions Catalog).  The Basic Pearls were colored with Sharpie marker.

Ink:  Real Red
Paper:  Fresh Prints DSP Stack*, Neutrals Designer Paper Stack.  Real Red and Crumb Cake cardstock
Accessories:  Natural 5/8" Chevron Ribbon*, 1/4" Red Stitched Ribbon, Victorian Lace, Silver Baker's Twine*, Basic Pearls

Very cool layering and colors that pop and soothe at the same time. The textures too really add a lot. I really love what you did with the various ribbon elements. Very unique. When the blog update came across my inbox I had to come tell you how very much I like this card and all you've put into the designing of it. Banners really are the coolest trend aren't they!
Thanks for sharing's going straight into the CASE files!

Oh I just love this! Great color combo and use of the embellishments. I need to get those framelits soon. I usually cut mine by hand too.
