2nd Banner for Contest
Hi everyone, today I am a guest designer on shesasassylady I wanted to show you my entry for the new HSN Banner Contest that Provocraft had for another launch of the E2 Last Monday 9-26. You need to make a banner that spells CRICUT. I made 2 banners and this is the second one. I started with my Imagine and using a fall paperstack I got last year, and flower shoppe cricut cart, I cut 5 sets of flowers that were 3 inches for the bottom layer and then all the corresponding layers. I layered them and set them aside.
I then took Straight from the Nest and did Layer Shadow on the Leaves, sized them to 5.15 real dial size and cut 4, I ran them thru my Sizzix with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I set these aside. I used the same cut and cut out of cream and gold cardstock smaller leaves. I cut a whole 12x12 page of these and set them
After I had all the pieces cut, it was time to assemble my wreath. I took ribbon and made the bow at the top. Wired and hot glued it to the wreath. Then the pumpkins were glued to the bottom to resemble a pumpkin patch. I started adding flowers and the small leaves to cover the gaps the pumpkins made. I attached 2 of the larger leaves to each side of the pumpkin/flower patch. I finally added the banner last. I felt it was missing something at this point, so I gathered more rafia and glued in bunches at each end of the "patch".
I hope you like my entry. Please disregard the paper towel that is stuck in the bow, I took the pics of the wreath in the car on the way to the post office. I did not want the bow to get crushed on the way to Utah.
I was please how it turned out, and would like to have kept if for my house. Thanks Sheila for having me as a guest designer today. Until next time, Beth.
