This cute little 3″ x 3″ gift card or note card is made with the Banner Banter stamp set and the Banner Punch. It was fun and easy to make! Just stamp some banners in whatever colors you like (I used Melon Mambo, Pistachio Pudding and Bermuda Bay) and adhere to card. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop them all up. You could adhere several straight to the card and pop one up, perhaps the one with the greeting. You could even stamp right on the Whisper White card layer. To make it look more like a hanging banner, I used Subtles Candy Dots. (LOVE those things!)
If you already own the Banner Punch that you might have gotten free during Sale-A-Bration, I would definitely encourage you to purchase this stamp set to use with your punch. I would also suggest that you purchase the wood-mount version of the stamp set because the stamps are small, and I think having them already mounted on the wood makes them easier to use. But to each their own! It’s whatever you prefer!
One more tip – to mount the greeting on the banner on a background layer of card stock, I trimmed that down a little so it would fit on the punched banner. Since it was such a small piece, I just did it with my Paper Snips, and although not perfect, it is fine! We have to let go of the perfectionism sometimes. No one I give this to will say, “You know, there is a slight angle to your cutting on this greeting on the banner. Please take it away and make me a new one!”
If you did not choose a free Banner Punch during Sale-A-Bration, you can purchase one in the Stampin’ Up! Online Store HERE along with the Banner Banter stamp set. There is also another stamp set to use with this punch. It is called Itty Bitty Baby on page 81 of the Stampin’ Up! Catalog. It is absolutely adorable, but I had to pass it up (this time!).
