Birthday Pennant Card!

Pennant are hot in the paper crafting world right now. So while at Convention Carrie Cudney showed us a super cute and easy way to make pennants and this card is based on the one she shared with us. I just loved the idea of showcasing the new In Colors and they look so cheery and fun together. To make the pennant all you need is the Star Punch and Paper Snips, yep it really is that easy. Punch out one of each of the five In Color Designer Series Papers. You can pick the patterns you like best for my card I picked the stripes and polka dots. After you have the stars punched you cut one point at the base off the star. This gives you the pennant, so you can make five pennants from one star. The base is Pear Pizzazz. The pennant banner is added to a layer of Crumb Cake Card Stock that I have poked two holes into with the Paper Piercing Tool. Add a piece of Hemp Twine for your Pennant String secured on the back side of the paper and you are ready to add the pennants. I secured them with Mini Glue Dots making sure that the glue dot is at the top of the pennant. Attach the pennant to both the Hemp Twine and the Crumb Cake Card Stock and your pennant banner will stay in place. To finish off the card we used the Happy Birthday from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and Concord Crush Classic Stamp Pad. Simple but cute and easy to give. I hope you enjoyed today's card and that it has inspired you to go and stamp something. :) Thanks for stopping by, I hope you come back again, Tonya
