One card, three ways

One stamp set. One card layout.
And a variety of paper bits, and embellishments.

I used the Card Chatter - Birthday stamps for all three of these cards. And the same layout. Pennant flags are so trendy right now! CTMH has an adorable pennant alphabet stamp set, and the Party Pennants set (also completely adorable!) But just in case you don't have those sets (yet) here's a way to tide you over. I created these pennants by cutting a rectangle of patterned paper, 1x2.5 inches. Lay the rectangle on your paper trimmer, lining up the opposite corners on the cutting line. (To cut two obtuse triangles.) Then, lay the two pieces back together, and cut from the opposite side, corner to corner. You'll have FOUR pieces - two of them will be the pennant shape. Cut a couple in different papers, and you can mix them up a bit! Or just use the front and back side of the paper, for some variation. (I hope that made sense, I seem to have a 17 month old screaming at my feet.)

Using Fanfare paper, and jewels. I inked the pennant's edges in coordinating ink.
Using Sophia paper, and pearls.
Love how this card can be totally girly, kid-friendly, or masculine. Just change up the embellies and papers. And you can play around with the measurements of your pennants to adjust them for a 12x12 layout, or a smaller card. Have fun!!!!!
