Someone, in my house is turning 65 this month. I won't mention any names, but I call her mum. LOL As soon as I saw the Jumbo Banner Day STAX Die-namics, I knew they would be perfect to create a happy birthday banner for her.
I used the largest Jumbo Banner Day Die-namics die to cut pieces of Black Licorice card stock. I layered the Black Licorice card stock with a polka dot print from Echo Park's Dots and Stripes collection.
Along the top of each banner, I used the scalloped border die that comes with the Jumbo Banner Day STAX Die-namics. I cut this piece in both Black Licorice and X-Press It card stock. It's super easy to line up these two pieces to create a double scallop border at the top of the die. I used some Charcoal Twine to link the banners together.I used the new Mini Doily Circles Die-namics die as a base for the letters, these dies are the perfect size to use with the new By The Letters Uppercase Die-namics. I used the By the Numbers Die-namics dies for the 65 and the By the Letters Die-namics for the th. I love being able to use all these Die-namics sets together!
Now, let's talk card stock and ribbon. MFT recently added some gorgeous grosgrain ribbon to their collection. This ribbon coordinates perfectly with MFT's card stock. For this project I used Berrylicious Card Stock and Berrylicious Ribbon, Sour Apple Card Stock and Sour Apple Ribbon, Razzle Berry Card Stock and Razzle Berry Ribbon, and Lemon Drop Card Stock and Lemon Drop Ribbon. I just love having matching card stock and ribbon!
