Thursday...A Birthday Banner

My neighbor's little boy is turning 1. I made this banner for him this week. It is the first one I have made.  The party has a John Deere theme.
The picture of the entire banner isn't great. I just strung it up outside of my craft room so it look silly hanging across the front door. Oh well.
I will post a picture of each card in the banner...half today and the remainder tomorrow.
Saturday I will post a video showing how to make those little tractors.

I used a standard A2 sized card. Cardstock base measures 4 1/4" x 11" folded at 5 1/2".
I used a glue dot to keep the card closed over the hemp twine I used to string the banner up.








I used daffodil delight taffeta ribbon in between each card. Striped grosgrain ribbon was used at the beginning, middle and end of the banner.
I used:
Paper: Garden Green CS #102586, Basic Black CS #121045, Whisper White CS #100730, Big Top DSP #122348, Patterns DSP Stack Regals #117154 and Brights #117155, Basic Grey CS #121044, Soft Suede #115318
Ink: Garden Green #102272, Basic Black #101179, Basic Grey #109120, Soft Suede #115657
Other: Striped Grosgrain Ribbon #119770, Taffeta Ribbon #120928, Owl Punch #118074, Round Tab Punch #119864, Circle Punches #119868, #119861, #119860,
Jewelry Tag Punch #117190, Tag Punch #119866, Scallop Circle Punch #119854, Word Window Punch #119857, Photo Corner Punch #retired, Buttons #119747, Mini Clothespins #122942, Linen Thread #104199, Hemp Twine #100982

Yea! can't wait for the video :) I've been sending my niece's fiance truck cards while he's in the hospital, now I can change it up with John Deere, his next favorite hobby. TFS

That is just as cute as can be! A lot of work, but the end result is wonderful. I am sure he will love it!

My son's birthday is next week and he is a HUGE John Deere fan--works on a wheat ranch. The John Deere card will be perfect for his birthday:) Sooo cute!
