Christmas banner

Apologies for the lateness of today's post, I needed some assistance with getting some pics! Gayle here with some Christmas banners to share :)
I used the Retro Holiday stamp set and Snowflake Rosette die to embellish pennants cut from white card and inked with Distress Inks and Stains.

The pennants measure 6 inches wide at the top edge and 7 inches in length, with a small fold over piece at the top to attach it to the brown twine.
The snowflake die cuts were formed into rosettes and then sprayed with blue and brown shimmer ink sprays and decorated with crystal and icicle Stickles, before layering them to make bigger snowflakes (I actually love these layered up, such a fab effect).
The snowflake pennants are coloured with broken china and tarnished brass Distress Stain, with some faded jeans Distress Ink around the edges and stamped with an Indigo Blue script stamp in old paper Distress Ink.  I added some strips of tissue tape randomly to each pennant.
The snowman and Season's Greetings pennant background were coloured similarly but with the stamped images in coffee brown Archival ink and some frayed burlap Distress Ink around the edges.  I hot glued a strip of lace ribbon along the top of the three pennants, I liked the snowy look!
Thanks for visiting today!  You can find everything I used at The Stamp Attic, plenty of goodies to help with making your own Christmas decor :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

That's simply pretty and awesome! i love the unique design your used for your christmas banner. I think i will use the same idea and then write christmas wishes on each of the banner and wrap it around the christmas tree. Thanks!
