He is Risen Banner

Mar 30, 2018 | Home Decor

A couple weeks ago, I shared a banner inspired by St. Patrick’s Day.  Today, I have yet another banner, this time for Easter.  Instead of going with the traditional “Happy Easter,” I made this banner to say “He is Risen.”  The crosses from the beautiful Hold on to Hope stamp set in the 2018 Occasions Catalog are a great addition to this banner.

I made the base of the banner the same way as my other banners.  Click the following links to see the other banners and for more instructions: Thankful Banner, the Merry Christmas Banner, and the Blessed Banner.  I used Basic Black cardstock and the colorful striped pattern from the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper.  The colors of the stripes work really well with the Easter decor I already had from previous years.

To decorate, I used the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies to die cut all the Basic Black ovals.  I stamped and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder the cross image on Basic Black cardstock.  Then die cut with the coordinating framelit.  For the letters, I stamped each with Pool Party ink on Pool Party cardstock, and die cut out.  I adhered the ovals in the center of each banner section, then added the letters and crosses with Dimensionals.

Just like with my other banners, I punched a little circle about a 1/4″ in from the top two corners and strung the banner sections on some leftover Jute Twine from the Holiday Catalog.

I am really enjoying making banners for a variety of holidays.  Are there any banners of certain holidays or themes that you would like to see featured on my blog? If so, please contact me.

Happy making!
