thank you with Avocado Arts

thank you

Today it’s a look at the next kit from Avocado Arts, Wishes and Kind Thoughts.

thank you CU

I used several of the smaller images from the set to create my own patterned paper. Its easy to do, just place the stamps on an acrylic block and stamp away. The best thing is, you can turn the block around and around to get the pattern the way you want it to look.

thank you CU how to cut pennant

And I wanted to show you how easy it is to create a pennant shape panel for your cards. Cut the patterned paper to the width and length you desire. Then, use another piece of patterned paper, or scrap cardstock, that has a 90 degree corner. Center the corner, trace the lines lightly with a pencil, and then cut. Doing this with the same piece of cardstock on the patterned paper, as well as the stamped piece, allowed them to layer perfectly.

Be sure and stop by the rest of the team to be inspired!

What a brilliant tip for creating a banner edge!! Thanks for that. I'll be sure to do that from now on to get even tails. Hope you're having fun at CHA.

Great card and nice job on creating your own background paper, Kimberly! Appreciate the tip on making the tails of your flag banner just perfect. Have used a square punch before but has to be the right size and isn't always easy to line up. : )

GENIUS! I can't believe how easy your idea is for creating the banner. I feel so dumb I haven't figured that out on my own. I can't wait to try it. Great card too!
