Summer Fun Party Time!

Hi there!  It's Suzanne here today with another of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Group Posts!  This theme is Summer Fun - and it just so happens, I have those words!  Make sure you pop over to their blog to see the other creations!

I've created this sweet little bunting banner card to share with you today.  This would be an awesome birthday card!  Aren't these polka dots to die for?
Here is what you will need to make this card.

Elizabeth Craft Designs Supplies:

A Way With Words 4 Seasons  or ECD
A Way With Words Fun Play or ECD
A Way With Words Please Join Us Collection or ECD
Stitched Fishtail Banners
Thinking About Rio de Janeiro 6x6" Collection
Clear Double Sided Tape

Yarn or string
Tiny clothespins or clips
Cardstock which coordinates with the decorated paper: Dark and light turquoise, darker and light pink, pale blue
VersaMagic Turquoise Gem
Glue Dots 


  1. Form a 5 x 7" side-fold card base from pink cardstock.
  2. Die cut "Summer" and the largest Stitched Fishtail Banner from dark turquoise.  
  3. Die cut "Fun" from pink polka dotted paper and one of the second largest Stitched Fishtail Banner dies from darker pink cardstock.
  4. Die cut coordinating polka dotted and plain banners from pink, blue and turquoise from the middle and second smallest Fishtail Banners as shown and adhere them together.  Trim them to approximately 2.5".
  5. Stamp "Party time!" about 2.5" from the bottom of the card front.
  6. Cut a piece of twine or string and tie a knot in one end.  Stretch it across the top of the card and add another knot so the string appears slightly flexed. Trim and tack in place. Tack each of the banners in place with a Glue Dot near the bottom so the tops of the banners can be lifted and clipped with clothespins or other clips.  Hold the clips in place with Glue Dots. Slip additional Glue Dots under the banners to secure them.
  7. Trim the larger pink banner to 4.5" and the large turquoise banner slightly longer and attach them together.  Attach "Summer" and "Fun" to them as shown with Glue Dots and then adhere the banner with words under the "Party time!" stamp as shown.
  8. Voila!  a bright and fun card!  Happy creating!
