This is the card I made for the Control Freaks New Catalog Swap last month. I chose to use the NEW Hostess set called Banner Greetings (see it online HERE) and added some toothpicks to create some bright and fun banners.
I also used one of our NEW Designer Washi Tape Collections called Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape (order it #129314) I wrapped each pattern around my main image piece for some bright detail.
Washi Tape feels a bit like masking tape. It is translucent and a bit thinner. You can reposition it and tear it with your fingers. It is so much fun to use. :-)
I also added one of our New Brights Designer Buttons (order them #130028). The buttons have been redesigned and I have to say, I love them!!
If you check out the stamp set, there are no solid banners, each banner has a greeting on it. I wanted one of them to be plain. You can create the look of a plain banner by using the "baby cakes" greeting and covering it with a 7/8" Scallop Circle punchout. It fits over the words perfectly. I also added a Daffodil heart to the center for a pop of color.
