Hey there! Over the long Thanksgiving weekend I helped my daughter create 9 banners for her co-worker gifts. We used the trendy Gnome for the Holidays!
It's hard to see how cute this banner really is. My little point-and-shoot isn't up to this task!
I used Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White for my color scheme, which was the perfect background for the snowflakes, letters, and gnomes! I spelled out "M E R R Y" using a retired set of Stampin' Up! dies I will never get rid of, then used the Playful Alphabet to add "CHRISTMAS". In between each of the "M E R R Y" letters I added a banner with just snowflakes and the small Playful Alphabet letters to spell "CHRISTMAS". All of the banners are stapled over the twine so they can be slid back and forth to get the spacing correct depending on where you hang it.
I added adhesive with Adhesive Sheets before cutting out the snowflakes. This made assembly MUCH EASIER than trying to use liquid glue!
The gnomes (we made one banner with the Way To Goat stamp set but I forgot to take a picture before she took it away) were stamped with Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Stampin' Blends. I colored around each gnome with a Light Seaside Spray Stampin' Blend so I could easily cut around them.
