Pretty Banner Card


Hope your day is off to a great start! I'm planning a crafting day with my two little girls- they LOVE to stamp and my oldest who is 6 has been asking me to teach her a few new techniques- lol! She'll be mastering all my favorites before the day is over, I'm sure!

I thought I'd pop on and share a pretty card I made featuring my favorite punch- the banner!

I love that this card is vintage and distressed but still nice and bright! I think you need four tools to create the perfect distressed look- a sanding block- I've used it to sand the edges of my DSP here; a poofer (or spritzer) to use to speckle your marker ink all artsy like; the Decor Elements applicator tool- I think it works even better then the tonic distressing tool; and your hands- just wad your paper up, roll it around and voila! Instant distress!

Thanks for stopping by today!
