A Simple Banner Punching Above Its Weight? Card Idea using Stampin' Up Products.

A Simple Banner Punching Above Its Weight? Card Idea using Stampin' Up Products. 

Some times in card making, knowing when to stop can be the hardest part.

I made this very simple card by punching out cute little banners using the banner punch from Stampin' Up. 

They are layered onto a Crumb Cake matt using dimensions and then I've ran over the top of them with a piece of linen thread.

I then wanted to keep going and was trying to find ways to add more focus to the card. 

I went for a cup of tea, came back to my desk and you know what - I decided to just add the sentiment and then stop. 

What do you think? Enough? Needing More?

I think I am pretty happy with this under-stated little number. I think these little banner punch outs come together and punch well above their weight as the end card is well above the weight of its constituent parts.

  1. Lovely, you were right to stop there.
    Would make a nice card for a male too,
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. I think it looks great the way it is. I think at times, we go a little crazy and the cards can be way too busy. This is a perfect clean and simple card, and like Marthea said, it's perfect for a male card as well! You could make a set of these with different sentiments like "congrats" etc. Thanks!
