Paisley Banner Thank You Card

Welcome to my late night Saturday post. Do you ever find yourself looking for excuses to buy a new crafting item? For the last several months I really wanted to buy the Cricut Pretty Pennants cartridge, but I always convinced myself to wait. Then, Friday morning I read the CAS-ual Fridays challenge is for banners and flags, and at that point I really wished I had purchased it. So what did I do? You guessed it, I went and bought it, and that's how I made the banner on this Paisley Banner Thank You Card.  I added the floral embellishment to give the card a little romantic flair. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Paisley Banner Thank You Card Supplies:
  • Paper: Brown card stock, white card stock, and marmalade blast card stock by Bazzill Basics.
  • Stamps: Curly Cute sentiment stamp set by Stampin' Up! (120510).
  • Inks: Classic stampin' pad in early espresso.
  • Other Stuff: Decorative corner punch by Creative Memories, Cricut machine, pretty pennants cartridge, floral embellishment by Recollections, and stampin' dimensionals.

P.S. I did get the pretty pennants cartridge on sale, so it was worth the wait!


  1. I love the gemstone and the colours. Beautiful card... as always.

  2. Very nice design and could be done in any color for a very nice thank you card.

  3. Andrea - I love inventing excuses to buy new crafty items! It's one of my favorite pastimes! Your paisley banner is just beautiful! Thank you so much for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  4. I've done exactly the same thing--using a challenge as justification to buy something on my wish list! That pretty pennant definitely looks worth the wait. The detailed pattern is so lovely. Thanks for sharing this with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
