Pennant Parade birthday cards

My Friday feature last week, showing how to use our all occasion stamp sets for Christmas cards, used Pennant Parade.

And again, this stamp set isn’t just for Christmas, it has images and sentiments that you can use year round.

I really couldn’t make my mind up about whether to use white or vanilla for this card and so I ended up doing one of each! Smile

Here’s the white with the same colours layered together and trimmed with Basic Rhinestones.

And here’s the vanilla, with some of the colours alternated and trimmed with Basic Pearls.

The base for each is a DL card of Naturals White/Ivory. The sentiment from Perfectly Penned (W128703 or C122892) was stamped onto matching card with Baked Brown Sugar ink and the layer matted onto Baked Brown Sugar card. Using the new In Colors (Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana) and the Pennant Parade set (W128697 or C122742) the scallop pennant, one of the pattern triangles and the small starburst were stamped onto Whisper White/Very Vanilla card. They were then punched out with the Petite Pennants Builder (122361) and Itty Bitty Shapes (118309) circle. The sentiment from the same Pennant Parade set was stamped in Baked Brown Sugar ink and punched out with the 3/4″ Circle (119873). After building the pennants with dimensionals between all layers, they were threaded onto Linen Thread (104199) and strung between two Candy Dot Brad Bases (132293) topped with Basic Rhinestones (119246)/Pearls (119247). Smaller Rhinestones/Pearls topped the punched starbursts. The layers were added to the card front with the pennants allowed to move freely.

  1. Both are wonderful, but I like the one with multi color pennants. (White or ivory card stock.)
    Thank you for sharing!
