Hearts on Banners with Tan Stripes

Just a few hearts, left over from other projects.  Love using my leftovers to make something nice!

I like the alternating pink and red colors, with a bit of embossed texture and two kinds of stripes (paper and twine).  Simple design, but interesting to look at.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) pure poppy (red), berry sorbet (pink), and stripes from PTI fine linen (tan) pattern pack.
  • Die is the inner heart from PTI framed out #11 (pink hearts).  
  • Punches are 1/4" hole punch (dots) and EK Success 1" heart punch (red heart).
  • Banner notches are hand cut. 
  • Embossing folder is Stampin' Up square lattice.  
  • Red baker's twine is by We R Memory Keepers.  I pierced my banners right at the top of the hearts, and pulled the twine through to the back of the striped A2, so it wouldn't be bumpy under the hearts.  The striped A2 is adhered to a sturdy white card base, covering the twine.
  • I popped up the outer part of the hearts with bits of Tombow power tab - not as thick as foam tape.
