heres what i did to make my banner...
i cut cardboard to the size i wanted then turned on my cricut machine oooh aint i just the talented one lol
graphically speaking (fourth of july),george ( large star) and a childs year (flags and child silhouette and tiny stars) cartridges. i added crystal stickles all over.
george (stars) wildcard( celebrate)cartridges.
i used SU dazzlin diamonds ( what a mess!) on the stars.
i just hand drew the claender on a piece of cardstock and musse dit up with tim holtz distress stains and a sharpie. added the star on the 4th with a foam stickie and glitzed it up with gold stickles
george (usa and star) and going places ( america silhouette) cartridges.
i added stickles and rhinestones
way too much glitzy for me but it was so fun to be challenged! thanks mary!:)
