Happy Small Business Saturday! That's right, between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you'll find Small Business Saturday. I work at Creations Galore, an independent paper arts store in my city. I encourage all of you to support any small business in your area today! You can read more about supporting local businesses and today's holiday here.
Now let's move on to some crafty goodness. Unscripted Sketches put out one fantastic sketch this week. I absolutely love banners. The trend is still going strong. Head over to Unscripted Sketches to see the entire design team and the ways they incorporated "banners" into their paper crafting projects. Here's the sketch:
And here is my take:
JustRite has a beautiful banners stamp set that I was excited to use on this card. I stamped the smallest banners in the set on patterned papers and cardstock, cut around the design, and adhered them to the card face. I adhered the gold cord with Glossy Accents before attaching the flags. The beautiful sentiment is from JustRite as well and is stamped with black embossing powder.
I hope you've enjoyed my take on the sketch. Don't forget to link up your own project at Unscripted Sketches... We love seeing all your creativity!
