Cards in Envy Challenge – Make it a Banner Year!

Happy New Year friends!  With the holidays over, it’s time to get back into some card making challenges again!  Today I’m posting my design team entry for the Cards in Envy challenge “Make it a Banner Year”.  This challenges calls for using a banner of any type.  Flag banners, label banners, tag banners, you name it, be creative.  As usual, the only rule is your card must fit into a standard A2 envelope for ease of mailing.  The design team will be choosing their favorites and the winners will be posted on the Cards in Envy Blog.

Now, ready for some inspiration?  With all the Christmas cards I’ve made lately, I was in the mood to make a love card as we prepare for Valentines Day.  If you are also a supporter of Operation Write Home, Love cards are one of the most needed cards and perfect for OWH anytime.

My card uses the 6 x 6 design pack called, “Black & White” by Glitz.  I stamped the Simon Says Stamp “Sending Happy Thoughts” envelope on the Glitz paper and strung them up using some waxy thread from Close to My Heart.  The LOVE sentiment are Basic Grey stickers and the “you” sentiment is from Winnie & Walter’s “Big Bold You”.  I used a heart die to cut out some red cardstock from Bazzil and covered it with Glossy Accents.  Finally, a sprinkling of sequence and gems to finish it off.

I can’t wait to see what your Banner Year looks like!
