My first banner ever and boy was this a lot of work but I love the outcome and so does my princess!
I used the Sizzix "Pennant" die which is smaller than the SU exclusive one.
Please check out my gallery for close-ups of the lettering.
Each letter was cut from my Sizzix "Serif Essentials" alphabet--the letters are mounted on chipboard with dimensionals behind them to make them stand out even more!
Each letter is dry embossed and individually embellished.
Each "tier" is separate--there is a 3rd tier with my daughter's name on it but I preferred just 2 tiers. The ends of the tiers can be joined for one continuous phrase or separated to appear as shown.
I used "Berry Sweet" designer paper by K & C for the pennant layers with a large variety of solid SU paper for the letters. I used more colors than I would normally in a design but I think it is whimsical and appropriate for an 8 year old.
Thanks for looking!
