I am also linking this up to the following challenges:
Heart2Heart's Color Me Happy challenge because Cranberry is my all-time, number one favorite color
CASology: Free because where would we be without our military heroes?
Operation Write Home: Clean and Simple with texture
There are a ton of photos to show you how I did this, but if you want the short version, I used the star and banner cuts from Artiste. For the top card, I stamped "Hero" from the coordinating stamp set Kudos in White Daisy. The stitching was done with a white gel pen I probably got at Micheals.
Here's the nitty gritty...
The banner is on p. 58. I started at 1 inch and had to make it smaller using the bottom right dohickey (just below the cursor arrow in this picture). Yeah...there's probably a better word for it, but I can't think of it right now. Then, using the stretch feature (cursor arrow is pointing to that dohickey), I pulled each banner just a little longer than the last one.
The top and bottom larger stars have double foam mounting so the stick up at the same height as the others.
Wow! Lots of pictures and explanation. Thanks for sticking with me. If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I'll reply.
One of the things I promised to do during the OWH Hop was to make two "Any Hero" cards. I'm proud to say, I fulfilled my promise with these two cards!! If you've never heard of this organization before, I encourage you to click on the Rosie the Riveter picture on my sidebar.
Until next time,
