Cut 6 triangles for the Easter Banner using Cricut GypsyCricut  INDEPENDENCE DAY Cartridge used to cut triangles.

6 Triangles cut using Cricut INDEPENDENCE DAY cartridge.

FISKERS crimper used to give texture to triangle.

CRIMPING the triangles really adds dimension!

COLOR BOX Fluid Ink Pad used to ink the edges of triangles.

Choose Scallop Frame from Cricut Ashlyn's Alphabet cartridge.   Notice that I used the Cricut Gypsy to "hide" the outside scallop edges.  Cut out 6 white card stock ovals to stamp images on.

Begin by wiping the white card stock with the SU Embossing Buddy.  This prevents stray embossing powder to adhere to background.  Used VersaMark ink to stamp images on white card stock.  Used heat gun to set the BLACK embossing powder on the images. 

Cut 6 Scallop Oval frames from Cricut ASHLYN'S ALPHABET cartridge.



I was able to use the "inside" oval in the opposite color scalloped frame.
LIQUID PEARLS in "White Opal" dotted around frame.  LOVE how this added Simple Elegance to the oval frame!!!!

SU Embossing Buddy used to wipe white card stock BEFORE stamping image.  Heat gun used to set the Embossing Powder.
SU "STAMP-A-MA-JIG" used to line up the image on cardstock!  MUST HAVE TOOL!  LOVE IT!!!!
SU Stamp Sets used "BUNNY BUDDIES" & "SPRING GIFTS".  VersaMark used to ink images on white card stock.  SU BLACK EMBOSSING POWDER used to outline images.  The embossed images keep the water color crayons from bleeding into another part of the image.
SU WATER COLOR CRAYONS & SU BLENDER PENS.  BLENDER PENS used to blend the water color crayons on the stamped images.
Ink INSIDE & OUTSIDE of scallop frames with COLOR BOX ink pads.





SEW RIBBON by We R Memory Keepers!  SEW EASY to use!  LOVE this tool!!!

PUNCHING holes using "SEW RIBBON" tool.  

Thread ribbon through holes.  Ribbon looks "SEW" Wonderful! LOL



Adhere the ovals to the banner using Dot Adhesive Runner.

Cut strips of paper in 1" by 7".  Use FISKERS Border Punch to add scallop edges.  Remember to ink the scallop edges with the COLOR BOX Fluid Chalk before adhering to the banner.

Adhere SCALLOP BORDERS to triangle using Dot Adhesive Runner.  Trim as necessary.
