Pennants, banners, flags

Pennants, banners, flags was the theme of the August Craftmad Swap.  Check out the Craftmad Gallery for everyone else's take on this challenge.

I thought this would be a good opportunity to reduce my scraps a little.  However, this time I thought I would also stick to a Design Paper range of dug out all my Bazzill paper from the Avalon range.  Cut out all the little triangles and then with my fine tip black pen drew and outline just on the inside of every triangle.  Next I grabbed my ruler and drew four black lines across the front of my card and then added  my flags.  I then hand wrote Happy Birthday and added some small dots to the card.  Thought that would be the card but was not happy with it.  So dug out my black Happy Birthday stickers and added them to small strips of the same white peal card stock as the card front. Rounded the corners on the strips.  Then I used my favourite stickers...these wonderful birds from Sticker Store.  I think they just finish the card nicely.


  1. I love the layout of the banners and birds Merry..Loz

  2. It is a great way to use up scraps and they always look great .I've gone overboard the last few weeks and added bunting to lots of my cards.
    Off to have some lunch and then tackle the dreaded ironing.

  3. oh I LOVE this idea, fan-tabulous use of scraps and I just love the addition of the birds!
