Papertrey 5th Anniversary + Pinterest

Chances are you are reading this post because you are taking part in the 5th anniversary party over at Papertrey Ink. This is the first chance I've had to post in a while, and I've been wanting to all week. (Isn't this anniversary stuff head-spinning?!)

I found Pinterest through Mish Wooderson a while back when she was on the design team at Papertrey. I LOVED her pins, and was hooked on all those glorious images. The challenge today was to post a card inspired by an image on Pinterest. This image with it's soft pallette can be found here. I just love the neutral wall with the pale pink, and banners have been right up my alley since Papertrey's Banner Builder Collection dies.

My Valentine Banner card has much the same colors as the Pinterest pic; only the exposure is different ;). This six panel card is easy to make by punching small holes at each of the folds and sewing bakers twine in and out. The execution is very easy , and I will post it on my blog if anyone would like to know how it was done.

The banner flags were cut by placing the fold of the paper just below the top cut line of the banner die. I'm hooked on Papertrey's dies and  this card made good use of my stash. All items are Papertrey other than the six panel card, 'Versa Mark' trees and ground flora, and the computer text 'from our yours'. The card is just the right size to fit into one of the clear boxes the Papertrey stamps sets use to come in. (Think I'm going to have to see the new packaging to wrap my head around it!)

Supplies: Papertrey's 'Home Made' and 'Up, Up & Away" stamp sets
Papertrey dies: Banner Builder Collection, Picket Fence, In the Meadow Silhouettes, Block Alphabet Collection
