Today is Deana's day on Nikki's blog and she has three amazing cards and a layout with a tutorial to share with us today! I just love Deana's work! She always amazes me!
"I love how fast & easy it is to use the cut-outs & punch-outs to make cards! I can simply add some ribbon or twine along with them... or even make my own embellishments using some of Nikki's paper, like I did on my Thank You So Much card. And the brown Burlap Button was the perfect finishing touch! I LOVE the new collections!" ~~Deana
And here is Deana's layout and her tutorial on how she makes her flag banners!! Deana used the Messages collection on her beautiful layout!
I decided to use the Messages collection to preserve a “love note” email from my husband. In order to make my flag banner, I used the cover sheet to the collection and cut out each strip individually.
I gave my strips the look of a ribbon, by gently folding each piece in half (without totally creasing it) and then snipping the end diagonally. I drew a line with a pen for illustrative purposes only…
Then I just slightly overlapped all my strips and added a photo to my banner. I included my email print-out on top and further embellished my page with border strips and cut-outs.
I’ve been making so many flag banners on my pages lately, that my 10-year old daughter recently asked me how many times I was going to put them on my pages. I said, “Well, I don’t know. Clearly I must like making them!”
Hope this little tutorial helps you make them , too!
Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to Deana for sharing your creations with us today!
