Hello there!
Today, I am sharing a fun banner I made to hang on my Christmas Tree.  I used Warm Woolen Mittens stamp set, Mistletoe Memories stamp set, Grand Banners cut file & Winter Sentiments cut file (that coordinate with Mistletoe Memories perfectly).  
  

The center banner, was created by cutting out the elements (banner topper, banner shield & the sentiment).  I then stamped the Christmas text stamp in a green ink onto the white card stock, stamped the line in red ink, and the sentiment in black ink.  The kraft card stock on the backside, has the Christmas text stamped in red.  The topper was adhered to the banner using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam squares (small).


The outside edge banner pieces were created, again by cutting out the banner shield & topper.  Stamping the Christmas text in red ink onto the white card stock.  Stamping the mittens, coloring them in with Copic Markers, attaching ribbon to the mittens, and adhering them to the banner piece using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam squares.
