Hey-o everyone! It's Monday and that means it is time for the weekly Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge post. Our challenge this week was selected by our talented Design Team sister, Mayra, who's challenge is a bit.... CHALLENGING! Mayra asked the DT members to select their favorite Cricut cartridge or Cricut cut and create a project. Wow! She really thought I could select only one cartridge?? Well I tried....
You know how I always say that Art Philosophy is my favorite cartridge? Well it is one of my top favorites! But I also LOVE Pretty Pennants and the font on CM Divine Wedding. So I combined three of my favorites and created this banner for Bethany's wedding to use on the cake table.
I do not recall if I have shared, but Bethany's colors are pink and brown - with three shades/tints of each hue. With her colors in mind, I designed this seven pennant banner - there are three photo pennant elements, two word element pennants, and two wedding cake pennant elements.
I used Bazzill wedding card stock for the white/ivory cuts. I also used Close To My Heart Champagne color card stock, and Bazzill pink and brown card stock.
I love the photos that I was able to add to the photo pennants. I chose two fun photos and one posed "couple" shot to use in the brown wrought iron cut outs.
I love the fun photos above and below. I used three layers on these pennants - pink scalloped background, wedding ivory middle layer, and the brown iron cut on top.
You may have noticed that all of the pennant sections are trimmed in flowers. I used CTMH Champagne card stock, white American Craft card stock and pink Bazzill card stock to cut twenty-four Art Philosophy roses. I used the CTMH quilling tool and glue to assemble the roses. Once dry, I glued the roses, in various combinations and colors, to the corners of the pennant sections.
I added brackets to the back of the pennant sections to run ribbon through. I used ivory silk-like seam binding to attach the sections together. I also used champagne colored silk-like seam binding and chocolate brown CTMH ribbon strips to embellish each corner of the pennant sections.
I really like how the pennant came together and I think it is going to look great on the front edge of Bethany wedding cake display.
Be sure to go by Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the fabulous projects my Design Team sisters created using their favorite cartridges/cuts! This is such a fun challenge, the most difficult part is picking a favorite cartridge or cut, I hope that you will make time this week to join us in the challenge!!
