Extended Banner Tutorial

Hi Everyone! Today I thought it would be fun to show you how I like to make extended banners using Lawn Fawn stamps. I'll get right to it and show you my completed card. Then we'll look at the simple steps so you can make your own. ;)
 
 
The concept for this card started with a pile of sticky notes. Once I made sure I had a concept that worked and a sentiment that fit I started stamping on cardstock. :) So here it is, super simple...
 

First I stamped the banner I selected from Bannerific 3 times.


 
Then I trimmed each banner to be the start, middle and end to my extended banner. Next I stamped the sentiment from Lucky Stars, added a little interest to the middle using Interlocking Backdrops and glued the banner together! What do you think? You could also mask and make it one big piece but I decided to go the easy route today. :)
 


Hope you are inspired to give it a try! Thanks for stopping by!
