1. Create a card base from kraft cardstock. Cut two 4″ x 1″ strips of polka dotted paper and adhere one strip to the bottom of the card. Add two layers of patterned papers to the top of the card and adhere the second 4″ x 1″ strip of polka dots across the top, as shown. Machine stitch.
*NOTE: to give my projects a bit of a shabby, distressed look, I like to edge my papers with ink. For this project, I used white ink on the kraft cardstock and dark patterned papers and black ink on the light paper. I gave the papers even more of a distressed look by dragging my fingernail across the edges.
2. Add trim. Create four custom bubble caps embellishments using a Maya Road Kraft Note Envelope and the Epiphany Crafts Round 14 Shape Studio Tool. Adhere across the bottom strip of polka dot paper. Add a Round 25 Clear Bubble Cap to a Maya Road “31″ Kraft Typography Number and adhere to the center of the polka dot strip.
3. Ink a scalloped chipboard frame with white ink and edge lightly with black ink. Adhere to the center of the card with foam adhesive. Edge a kraft envelope with white ink and adhere to the center of the chipboard frame.
4. Stamp sentiment onto thin strips of patterned paper and trim into banners. Attach banners into memo pins and tuck pins into the envelope. Adhere a vintage clip art die cut to the outside of the envelope. Affix a chipboard bat at the bottom of the clip art using foam adhesive.
5. Add a bow to the left side of the frame. Create a custom button using the kraft envelopes and the Epiphany Crafts Round 14 Button Studio Tool. Thread button with string and adhere to the top of the bow.Smile Banner by Gina Lideros
Epiphany Crafts Supplies:
Epiphany Crafts: scallop 25 shape studio tool, round 25 shape studio tool, round 14 shape studio tool, scallop 25 shape bubblecaps
Maya Road: canvas banner pieces (from canvas banner album), wooden bird pieces, craft doilies, buttons
Pebbles: pattern papers, smile sticker, smile clothespins (Sunnyside collection)
Studio Calico: Mister Huey’s spray mist (mint julep)
adhesive: Beacon’s 3-in-1 quick dry glue
Brother: sewing machine
To create my banner, I first sprayed some Maya Road canvas banner pieces with spray mist:
Then I used my Epiphany Crafts scallop 25 shape studio tool, to make scallop epoxies and adhered them to my banner along with Maya Road craft doilies and Maya Road buttons.
Next, I used liquid glue to adhere Maya road wooden bird pieces.
Lastly, I punched some pieces of pattern paper using my Epiphany Crafts scallop 25 shape studio tool, round 25 shape studio tool, and round 14 shape studio tool.
Then I sewed them together in a long chain to make a stitched banner to hang from the top of my canvas banner. I then attached them with wooden clothespins.
