Mint Motif and a giveaway

SORRY! This project has been removed for publication.

One more day of Mint Motif projects to share with you! Beyond Borders Too and Simply Sentiments are both available now, exclusively, at the i {heart} papers store.

I wanted to show off all the borders in a project. A bunting immediately came to mind. Fun, festive, and irresistible, at least to me. :)

I started by hand cutting each pennant from kraft cardstock.
Then I stamped each background from Beyond Borders Too repeatedly and heat embossed them with white powder. To create the repeating border, I started by turning the pennant on its side and stamping the long way.

A piece of felt was die cut using Spellbinders Edgeabilities and adhered to the top of each pennant.
To add a sentiment, a strip of kraft cardstock was stamped with a sentiment from Simply Sentiments.

Bunting CU 3

For the final touches, Spellbinders Spiral Blossom Three was added to each side of each pennant. And a butterfly was die cut and stenciled through with ink.

Check out what these creative ladies have for you today:
thanks for stopping by!

The banner is wonderful. I love your new sets. I have two important anniversaries coming up next week - it has been five years since my husband quit smoking (never thought he would) and my best friend will be celebrating five years of being cancer free. Both very card-worthy occasions.
