Setting Sail with Hello, Sailor

When I used the banner punch to make hanging banners, one of my regulars, Sharleen, said that it looked like hanging laundry and she was not fond of hanging banners.  Of course, I took that as a challenge  and made this flag banner card.  I wanted that look of banners flying in the wind.

The Pool Party DSP has the look reminiscent of waves of water.  I wanted a little separation beween the DSP and the cardstock but adding ribbon looked messy so I folded over the DSP by scoring the top 1/4 inch and a different DSP shows which added just the accent I needed.  Stamp the banners in summer starfruit, smoky slate and strawberry slush and pool party as shown and punch them out.  Don't worry, the punch is coming back in the main catalogue this summer in case you did not get a free one during Sale-a-bration.  I used Multipurpose Liquid glue to make 3 lines on which I put on the whisper white baker's twine then used dimensionals to add the flags in some, others straight onto the cardstock.  Stamp the sentiment from Hello, Sailor then diecut with windows frame framelit and mount with dimensionals and it looked nautical without being literally so,
