XOXO Banner

I have been wanting to use my Ribbon and Rosettes cartridge that I got for Christmas and finally had a chance to when I made this Valentine's Day Banner.  I used the heart rosette and cut it at 3 1/2". I cut 6 sections and adhered them together with Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive. My patterned paper is from a K & Company Valentine's Day paper pack that I got two years ago and also from one from last year. I then cut the heart from the Sweethearts Cartridge at 4". I cut the shadow out of pink and the main layer out of white. I then spritz everything with some Tattered Rose Glimmer Mist. I also used the George and Basic Shapes cartridge to cut a 3" circle that I adhered to the back of the Rosettes. I used Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive to attach the hearts to the front of my rosettes and the circles to the back of the rosettes.

For the top and bottom rosettes I cut the cupid from the Sweethearts cartridge at 3 1/2". I cut the shadow from black and the cupid from red. I then sprayed the cupid with the Tattered Rose and Black Cherry glimmer mist and the coated it lightly with the Pinata Glimmer Glaze that I just got from Cutters Creek. (It is beautiful). Finally I added some Thistle Stickles to the heart for added glitz.

For the middle rosette I cut the XOXO from the Tie the Knot cartridge at 1 /2". I used the same colors for the shadow and base layer and white for the layer on the first X. I sprayed these also with the Tattered Rose and Black Cherry glimmer mist and thistle stickles to the white layer of the X. I adhered all these cuts with some gel foam tape. Finally I adhered each rosette to a piece of cream colored ribbon also lightly sprayed with Tattered Rose glimmer mist. I used some Beacons 3 in 1 glue to adhere the rosettes to the ribbon. I also made a loop from a small piece of the ribbon and attached it to the top layer to hang the banner. I am really pleased how this turned out. I always have a hard time taking good photos of my banners but in person it is really shimmery. Thanks for visiting.
