Fun & Easy Birthday Card with Banner Greetings

imageWhat do you think of when you see a stamp set that is full

of stamp images that look like flags? 

Well, I imagined banners, but don’t ask me why, but I never thought to make little flags with it.  But, thank goodness for other creative stampers out there!

My mom created this card and when I saw it, I thought it was a brilliant way to use these stamps!

She stamped the Happy Birthday image twice (once in Island Indigo and once in Tangerine Tango) and then cut them out and attached them to the ends of toothpicks.  Voila!  You have adorable flags for your projects!

tip: to adhere the banners to toothpicks, I recommend using the Tombow Liquid Glue along the straight edge of the stamped image.  You can also leave some extra white paper to the left of the stamped image and roll that around the toothpick to create your flag as well.

And yes – you have to cut these out by hand.  Sorry. Smile 

Tuck them behind a piece of the Natural Trim ribbon and you can’t even see the ends of your toothpicks and the tape or glue you had to use to adhere them to your card front.

Card Supplies Used:
Stamps – Banner Greetings
Ink – Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango
Paper – Tangerine Tango cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Quatrefancy specialty designer paper
Accessories – Natural Trim ribbon, toothpicks
