love banner….by melissa cash

Hi there!  This week we have been playing along with Debbie’s awesome challenge to use Pantone’s Color of the Year which is Radiant Orchid.
I had an idea to make a fun banner for Valentine’s Day.
Each of the banners is 4 1/4″ x 6″.  I started with a light orchid cardstock and then layered a medium orchid panel that I embossed with a Cuttlebug EF.  I wasn’t sure how I was going to like this color, but guess what?  I likey a lot!  I used Tombow’s new Extreme Adhesive to adhere the embossed panel to the lighter orchid layer and it worked like a charm as sometimes it can be a bit tricky when you have the extra element of embossing.  Next, I cut the doily and LOVE letters using Silhouette cut files out of white and orchid cardstocks.  I attached the doilies with Tombow Foam Tabs and the letters to the doilies with Tombow Mono Multi.  You can’t see it, but I added a wee bit of glitter to each of the hearts.  The panels were tied together with twine and little bows added for a finishing touch.
 Don’t forget to participate in the challenge, you will find all of the details here.
