- I am laughing right now because I've realized that the last four out of five cards I've posted all have banners and this one does too! I think I may have a banner addiction. LOL! Oh well, when something works, it works.
- I printed the image on cardstock, tinted the edges with Black Soot DI, mounted it with foam tape for dimension, and then applied Black Diamond Stickles along the outside edges for that little bit of sparkle.
- I recently saw some black and orange baker's twine at the craft store and almost bought it until I realized that I could make my own for a lot less! They were charging nearly the same price for a few yards of the specialty two-tones as they were for the black and white in bulk. Distress Stain to the rescue! Just like any other ribbon or fiber, simply mist your twine with water and apply ink. I used Spiced Marmalade...worked like a dream. It's nice too because I could match the specific shade of orange on my card.
