Birthday Banner by Billie St Clair

Hello there!

Billie St Clair here, from Billie’s Scrappetique with another project for you!  This time it’s a banner for my youngest daughter’s birthday. 
Here is a shot of the entire banner.  Sorry for the glare.  It’s a rainy, NASTY day in Texas, so a flash had to be used.  ha!
Here is a close-up of one of the letters on the banner, so you can see what it looks like.  All of the letters use the same font cartridge, Stickles, etc.  Oooooo, bling! 
For this project, I cut the largest Spellbinders Nested Pennants and Spellbinders Nested Lacey Pennants.  I inked the edges of the polka dot paper with Ranger Vintage Photo ink and adhered the pennants together using Glossy Accents.  I added Ranger Star Dust Stickles around the edges of the pennants. 
I cut two horses using Cricut Old West cartridge.  I wanted the horses to look like they were looking at the name, so I cut one horse in “flip” mode to get a mirror image.  I inked the horses with Ranger Vintage Photo and pieced them together using Glossy Accents.
I cut the font using Cricut Storybook and inked the edges of each letter with Ranger Vintage Photo.  I added Ranger Star Dust Stickles to the edges of each letter.  Once the Stickles were dry, I adhered the letters to the pennants with pop dots.  I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch a hole in the top two corners of the pennants and added an eyelet.  I strung twine through each eyelet to create the banner and used a glue dot to adhere a little bow to the top corners of each pennant.  I left a length of twine on each end of the banner so I can adjust as needed for the birthday party!  Right now, it’s temporarily hanging in my daughter’s bedroom.  :-)
