I had a few Stampendous Owls coloured up, so I took a blue one and mounted it on the off cut of Spellbinders Sprockets. It is cut from snippets of navy velvet/suede card. This is the last of this paper. It is VOS and I have always loved it...hence hoarding it all these years!
I covered the card base a grey tone on tone stripe. I had two banners cut already from a scrapbooking page, so placed them on the far left side and mounted the framed owl just off the banners edge. Three little rhinestones and a K & Co greenery sprig and that side was finished.
I wanted to keep the card fairly simple as the brief is the banner, and I wanted it to show up. My banner was punched from the last snippets of the navy suede card using the modern labels punch from Stampin up. I didn't have enough card left to punch the whole thing so I just punched the end pieces and then trimmed them square across the top. I had some teensy letter stickers in my alpha drawer and they seemed to fit perfectly!
I ran a hand sewn length of the fine silver cord through the banners with a darning type needle, and then knotted the ends. A very slim pop dot and some glossy accents hold it down.
I did think it looked a wee bit bare and unbalanced on the bottom right, so I added the Quickcuts corner die on a scrap of the banner paper.
I am entering this card in the following challenges.
