It just so happens I was one of the many, many ladies that purchased this banner shape designed by Miss Kate's Cuttables last week (the SVG version is also available for sale at her shop HERE):
Such a fun versatile shape, don't ya think?! So I was feeling inspired by several of the options, but in the end I narrowed my focus to two of the banners in the set.
For my first card I had some super cute papers sitting at my desk from Doodlebug's new Flower Box collection. I love how this banner looks like it was made to go with these papers! I paired the banner with Silhouette's previously free polaroid frame shape, a bit of Doodlebug's baker's twine and a couple stickers.
After finishing the first one, I decided while I had everything set up it would be super easy to use the same general layout with different papers to create a Mother's Day card. For this one I turned to some older Basic Grey papers (Sweet Threads Collection) and my Technique Tuesday "Mama=Love" stamp set by Ali Edwards.
All in all a fun little challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by and for everyone who took the time to vote for my Paper Craft Magazine Reader's Poll card. You guys are the best and it means so much to me. Hugs! :)
