A Note 4 You

Hi, everyone!  It's Kelli and today I have a card to share with you that uses the Stitchery Doo Banners set.  I think this is one of my favorite sets of all time because the banners are so hot right now!  I also love that you can flip the one sided banners to go either left or right, it's totally up to you.  For this project I wanted the banner to come from the right so I made it facing to the left.  I also used the really long banner but just shortened it.

The main thing I want to point out about this card is that it uses all patterned papers from the Echo Park - Note to Self 6x6 pad.  I wanted to show how you can do this and have the patterns flow.  The biggest thing that I try to follow is to not layer two busy patterns on top of each other.  I chose the cork pattern for the main background because it was subtle so that I could layer the busy pennants on top. Another thing I love about the Echo Park 6x6 pads is that they normally come with a couple solids that match the colors.  The red layer that I drew stitch lines on is actually a paper from the pad so it coordinates perfectly.  For the love on the pennants I used the 'Stitched Together with Love' sentiment from the Sewing Chic set and stamped each letter separately and then punched them out with a hole punch.  To make it seem like they were strung I used some Baker's Twine and added a line and two bows on either end.

Even though this card has a slightly masculine feel I added a little heart to the sentiment, but I still think it could easily be given to anyone.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!  :)
