Baby Banner

Baby Banner by cathroff

Hi, I've been using up my snippets of shimmer cardstock. I was inspired to make a banner card by Di with one of her fantastic creations at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. (thanks Di). I was also inspired by the fabulous creations using beads over at Less is More.
 
Apart from threading the beads onto the thin card for the banner, the trickiest bit was putting the tiny hearts in place!

So, I'm entering the Snippets Playground again over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

And also, Less is More  where the challenge is to use beads in your project.

Materials used: Simon Says Stamp banner die; SU Square Lattice embossing folder; snippets of shimmer card, beads and sentiment sticker from stash.
Thanks for looking :)

So cute...what a great use of beads! I imagine it helps hold the string in place? I must remember this technique!
