Freedom Banner

Ok girls this project was one I made for a design team call but I didn't make it so I'll share it with you today...
This is what I did to make it and the cartridges I used...

*Everyday Paperdolls~ I cut the kids at 11-1/2 as well as the clothes. For the boy I added some Making Memories button brads to his shirt, I used a brown marker to highlight his hair and a white gel pen to all the places where there were cuts made. For the girl I used the brown marker for her hair as well and a white gel pen on her bow, bandanna, shoes, shirt and shorts. They both have a sparkler in their hand and wiggly eyes!
*Stand and Salute~ I cut the sparkler at 3-1/2 on some white pearl shine paper. Then I cut a shadow for each to correspond with their outfits. I also added some red stickles to the center of his and some blue glitter to the center of hers.
*Opposites Attract~ I cut all my letters at 4-1/2 using the opposite (pearl shine paper) and the opposite shadow (red cardstock) features.
*George and Basic Shapes~ I cut my stars at 4-1/2 and then embossed them using the cuttlebug and the D'vine Swirls folder.

I used some chipboard I had in my stash and cut it to 5-1/2 x 4-1/4, all my pattern paper is from the DCWV summer stack from 2008. The red, black and pearl shine (white for letters) is all from Provocraft. The brown and light blue (shorts) textured paper is Bazzill. I punched some holes with a hole punch and threaded some white fiber ribbon through to tie the letters together, then I tied the sign to their hands to make it look like they are holding it up. :) If you would like to see some of my other banners I have made for different holidays click HERE, HERE and HERE!

Also some other fantastic news, I just found out yesterday when I got home that I DID make the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Design Team. I was super happy so not making the other one didn't seem so bad anymore. You should check out their blog when you get a chance, Robin usually has some great prizes to giveaway and this weeks challenge should be lots of fun, you need to create something with a creepy crawly and use orange on your project!
