Banners are all the rage lately. If you haven't seen Stampin' Up!'s new Pennant Parade stamp set and coordinating punch, you have got to take a look! It makes putting a mini banner together a snap.
My card also showcases 4 of the 5 new In Colors from the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog. Stampin' Up! has a wonderful color pallet and a variety of accessories that color coordinate, so it's easy to put together a card, scrapbook page or 3-D item such as a decorated box or treat bag.
Notice the cross-stitch on the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border; my favorite way to use this punch! I just sewed up one side diagonally and came back down the other. For the white scallop trim, I punched another strip, cut it in half length-wise and adhered it to either side of the Island Indigo piece. I makes a cute little trim peeking out.
