Here is a banner I made for a swap at Paper Trader and it fits in with the theme at Inspiration Avenue "Autumn". For the banner design, we were to use a template but I took a little artistic liberty and used a template in my cricut to cut the backgrounds. For the paper on the backgrounds, I used double sided paper and then alternated the sides. I used the cricut again to cut out leaves of different colored texture paper. Underneath the letters, I added ribbon wrapped and painted cardboard for more texture.
Each letter included a pumpkin that I had sanded to give a more rustic feel. The fiber sting that tied each letter together was multi-colored. There is a little sparkle on the letters too.
Then on the last letter I added a dangled group of leaves.
Then yesterday I received in the mail my banner that was created by Connie It is so beautiful. I love the sparkle background, warm earth colors, and the leaves, vines, and pumkins. I have hung it over my window in my art room.
