Retro Fresh Banners Card

March is National Craft Month, did you know that?
Well, they say you learn something new every day, so there you go - you're welcome! Ha!

Anyway, I have a TON of completed projects that I've been dying to post for you here on the blog, but there haven't been enough hours in my day, can you relate?
So, hold on to your ink pads, you're gonna get lots of inspiration this month!

First up is one of the cards I created for my Just Cards - Express classes in February.
I think it was one of the crowd favorites, what do you think?

I used oodles of Spring Catalog products on this one and that fun, fresh color combo just makes me long for SPRING!

My card base is Tangerine Tango layered with a piece of So Saffron which I dry embossed with the Arrows Embossing Folder in my Big Shot.

#132187  Arrows Embossing Folder  $7.95
It's layered with a piece of Retro Fresh Designer Paper that I cut with one of the Banners Framelits.

#132173 Banners Framelits  $26.95

#132993 Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper  $10.95
I love all the layers and textures on this card.

The ribbon layers are done with pieces of Burlap Ribbon and Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon. Both are trimmed with the Paper and Craft Scissors into flagged ends then layered together with a bit of SNAIL Adhesive.
I attached them to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The greeting was done by stamping the sentiment from Perfect Pennants in Bermuda Bay ink. I stamped the heart image from the same set in Tangerine Tango ink, but stamped off on Grid Paper first to lighten the color a bit.
Once the stamping was done, I cut it out with another size from the Banners Framelits and layered it onto the ribbon with more SNAIL.
The finishing touch was a button from the Naturals Buttons collection adhered with a Glue Dot.

Such a great card and a breath of fresh air to remind us that Spring is on the way!

Here are the ribbons I used:
#130019 Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon $8.95
#132140  Burlap Ribbon $7.95
