Not a card but close.. Valentine Banners

Hello Card Markers.  I've missed you!

Welcome to my blog. I know ....I know I haven't posted a card in awhile. I have gotten several emails saying you love my felting but you really want some cards too.

So....today I am posting some Valentine Banners. I know they are not cards but they are pretty close. I have been making banners for our church home group. We are planning a big party for a local nursing home that we have adopted. I will share more picture of the other party decorations when they are complete.
Here is the first banner.
 This banner was made using my Cricut. I still love my Cricut even though my felting machine is trying to steal my heart. I cut the pennants at 11.5 inches in red  card stock, 6 times. They are cut from the Pretty Pennants Cartridge, page 9 and 10. I cut the white heart pennant at 11.5 inches also. I backed the white pennant with a red pennant. The letters where cut from the Storybook Cartridge at 6 inches. This was very simple and fast to make. I think every party needs a banner. I strung it all together with white ribbon.

Here is the second one. I really like this one. A playing card pennant.
One of the ladies in our group saw on Pinterest  (got to love Pinterest) they were using playing cards to make banners. I took that idea and make it HUGE. The cards are 5.5  x 8.5.  I  just took  8.5 x 11 sheet of card stock and cut it in half. I rounded the corners with a corner rounder. The numbers were cut with Storybook also at 2 inches. The hearts were cut with my Fuse and a Spillbinders Classic Scalloped Heart. I strung it all together with red and white ribbon.

As is everything I do, this was a very simple project to put together. We are waiting to decide how much room there will be to string this along a wall at the home. Most likely I will be making a couple more to fill in that wall. But as easy and fun as this one was to make. I wont mind making a couple more.

Let me know what you guys have been up to. I love hearing about your projects too.
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Life in 2013
