Autumn Banner

Happy Thursday!

I had wanted to make a Spring/Easter banner, but didn't get to it. Then, I had wanted to make a Summer banner, but didn't get to that either. So, as Fall & Halloween are fast approaching, I figured I had better get my 'Autumn' banner made. First I have the whole picture to show you and then some close-ups:



Wolfgang asked if I would spell-out Herbst rather than Autumn. As it was the same amount of letters I agreed! The Leaf & Thanksgiving papers are from a Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas stack I got at Michael's last year for $1.00. OK, I admit it, I bought more than one stack! For $1.00 each, how could I not?!?!? I used the Sizzix Large Scallop die to cut tan card stock (for the back), card board, and the patterned paper. The little scallop circles (SU punch) are Chocolate Chip and the letters (Sizzix Lollipop) are Really Rust & Crushed Curry.


The flowers are Artemio, the Old Olive swirls are a Sizzlet die, the leaves are an MS punch, and the apples are a Spellbinders Petite Borderabilities die.


The ghost is a Sizzix die, the Boo!, and the two larger pumpkins are Sizzlet dies, the bats are an MS punch, and the smallest pumpkin is an EK Success punch.

I found the template for the bird on Lynn Pratt's blog. I printed the template at 50% (yes, it required patience to him together at that scale!) and used SU Autumn Vine DSP (retired).
Hope you enjoyed seeing my Autumn/Herbst banner. I'm anxiously awaiting the 23rd so we can hang it up!
Thanks for stopping by.

How fun that you not only personalized this but decorated each letter scallop with different die cuts and embellishments. A really fun project.
