Blessed Banner

Mar 14, 2018 | Home Decor

I’m back with another banner creation.  This time it is inspired by St. Patrick’s Day.  If you do a search on Pinterest for “St. Patrick’s Day color palette” you wont find a lot of different color ideas. Everything is green, green, and more green.  Sometimes with a stroke of a rainbow and a drop of gold added in.  So that is the basis of my banner: greens, rainbow, and gold.

For this banner, I used Tranquil Tide cardstock for the base, sized at 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and cut according to Merry Christmas Banner post.  Then I added a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece from one of the Lemon Lime Twist patterned papers from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack, cut in the same fashion.

To decorate each banner piece, I cut a 1″ x 4″ piece of Gold Glimmer Paper and adhered it across the center.

For the circles, I traced around the outside edge of the largest circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies on pieces of Shimmery White Cardstock.  Then I used the Aqua Painter to do a water color wash on each traced circle with a different color for each (the tracing helped to get a large enough area colored)  Once dry, I sent the pieces through the Big Shot with the second largest circle die.  The colors I used for the rainbow are: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, Island Indigo, and Perfect Plum.

The letters are all stamped with Tranquil Tide ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the Large Letters Framelits Dies.  Then they are glued to the circles with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The finished circles are adhered to the banner bases with Dimensionals.

To finish the banner, I used the 1/8″ Circle Punch to make a hole in the top two corners about a 1/4″ in.  Then I stringed a 70″ length of Jute Twine (which I had left over from the Holiday Catalog, but any ribbon/trim would work) through the holes so it is ready to hang up.

If you enjoyed this banner, check back around Easter time because I have another banner in the works.

Happy Making!
