Pennants for Our Party!

Here's one of the cards we'll making this Friday at Stamp Class! I think the whole Pennants thing is so cool and trendy right now - I Love 'em!! And, of course, I love new stamps, but I love 'em even more when they have coordinating punches. Yesss....!

OK, but for class, I sorta cheated, but in a good way! Instead of stamping all the cool little pennant centers (which there are four fun different designs!), I decided to use the new Just Add Cake Designer Papers. Easier - just punch 'em out! Then I used Cardstock for the scallop-edged "background" pennant piece. - Wahlah!

But then we will do a little stamping for the little accent circles on the pennants! - And a super cool secret about all the sayings in the Pennant Parade set - they all fit inside the 3/4" circle punch so you can add them to your pennants - Fun!!

And here's a little fake out - for the string (White Baker's Twine) that holds the pennants all together... it's just two separate bows tied onto the ends. There really isn't a string attaching them all together. You don't really need it because you can just glue them down with a little overlapping to make them look "strung together."

Hope to see you on Friday (the first day to order from the new Catalog too!!),

Julie your card has made me decide that I HAVE to get that pennant punch! Really cute card. Great use of DSP paper.
