Build a Banner Cards

Hi Stampers!

I was on Stampin' Connection the other day, our demonstrator sharing web site, and came across this great idea for using the stencils from the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit in card making:

The card I saw was a Christmas card, but I wanted to make monogrammed note cards. For this card I used the colours I already had out from making my welcome banner.  Here's another colour combination:

This time I wanted a colour combination that was classy and looked a bit more polished.

Then I got to thinking, we could use the background stencils the same way we use Designer Series Paper or embossing folders to add a layer of interest to our cards:

Cute right?  I just love finding out that I product I bought for one purpose is more versatile than I thought it was!  What do you have in your stash that you can use in a different way than you have before?

Go stamp something!


  1. Those cards using the build a banner stencils are very cute, and I like the color choices.

  2. What a great idea! I was just building my Christmas Banner but I may have to make a couple of these cards to showcase the versatility of this kit! TFS, I love your cards.

  3. Thanks scramptastic and Janet! I'm glad you like them. You should give the stencil cards a try, they're quick and easy!
