Joy Banner Card for Scrappy-Go-Lucky

The Country Life cartridge has a great banner feature.  With a little adjustment in Design Studio or with the Gypsy, you can create a mini banner for a card.

For this simple and cheerful card I used the DCWV Christmas 12 x 12 stack, some Core'dinations Gemstone cardstock and the "joy" stickers from the Creative Charms Multi-Dimensional Christmas Twinkle Stickers.

 I created this card for Scrappy-Go-Lucky and you can get all of the details and download the file at THIS POST  on the Scrappy-Go-Lucky blog.  With just a few cuts and embellishments you have a very merry card!  You could punch your own one inch circles or add different embellishments to the pennants if you wanted to vary the design.

I used the same concept for this Halloween card, substituting the spiky pennant background for the scalloped layer.  The file for this card is on my blog at THIS POST.

Here is a baby card variation using the same file as the Joy card.  I used some epoxy stickers, polka-dot ribbon, and gem stickers on the tips of the pennants.

You can download the file for the Joy card or the baby card on the Scrappy-Go-Lucky blog at THIS POST.   Have fun experimenting with all of the variations.

I also want to let you know that Creative Charms is having a fantastic Black Friday Special - one day only!  These are great kits  - you have seen some of my projects using these items.  There are many more projects on the Creative Charms Blog.  The blog just was redone and it looks great!
