Oval Punch for Banners

I'm loving the banner trend, what about you? I've seen them in all shapes & sizes and love them any way they come. So, I was excited to see the Clean & Simple Sketch today.

Cute, right?!

I wanted to try something new with my banner. I decided to use the oval punch, then cut it in half. I stamped each piece with the adorable little images from Elementary Elegance, then popped them on dimensionals. I ran a thin line of liquid glue along the top of the banner and then laid my bakers twine over it. I trimmed the edges and added a bow to each end. Sticking with the oval theme, I stamped my sentiment and punched it with an oval punch, then layered it over the Modern Label Punch. To add just a little more interest, I finished the card off with faux stitching on the card base.

I agree! I like how you combined the punches for your sentiment. I'm always looking for new ways to use what I already have. TFS!
