SU Perfect Pennants

It’s time for another fun Friday Mashup Challenge! Holly is giving us a chance to replenish the Birthday card stash we used up last year! And…she has challenged us to use twine on our project/card for the Friday Mashup #142.

I used the new SU Perfect Pennants to create my card. I like to “tighten” up the borders on the pennants so I created my own Smoky Slate pennant between the Very Vanilla one and the Raspberry Ripple one. I did this by die cutting one the same size as the Raspberry Ripple one and lining up the horizontal side up against my Stampin’ Trimmer and trimming 1/16 an inch off each size until I was happy with the size. Doing it this way keeps the pointy ends of the pennant uniform when lined up because sometimes my cutting skills are lacking when I try to  cut the banner points via scissors! Then I just line up my pointy ends and trim an equal amount of the pennant off the top.

  1. Hi Cindy

    I forget to make pendants, and seeing yours makes me realize how effective they are. What a nice card! Great inspiration, thanks!

  2. Hi Cindy, I need some tips on how to create the ” V ” shape in the card you’ve made. I can never get them very nice. I very much enjoy your emails, I never seem to have time to make cards.

    Thanks Marie myziuk Canada

  3. Hello Marie, Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment;) I understand the dilemma with the V shape on banners but on this particular one…the SU Perfect Pennants did it for me! It is a die cut that cuts it that way. Another way I have done it is with a Square Punch…I will send you a pic by the end of the day via email.
