I've already created a few cards using this design in various colors, so I hope you'll give it a try using your SU stash or your favorite product line. I'd love to see your creations - just post a link in the comments below. Thanks for stopping by today, my friends!

Stampin' Trends #3
Hi, friends! I'm back today with another installment of Stampin' Trends, where I use Stampin' Up products to recreate some of my favorite trendy published projects. Today's card is a super simple but incredibly adorable summer thank you card. This card was inspired by the "Preppy Banner Card" designed by Julie Campbell on page 68 of the May/June issue of Paper Crafts magazine. Julie gave her card a farmhouse feel with papers from Crate Paper. Love it!
For my reproduction, I used the Everyday Enchantment DSP on a background of Whisper White card stock. My card base is Lucky Limeade - my favorite shade of SU green! I strung the banner with Dimensionals over a piece of Linen Thread and stamped my sentiment (from Rue Des Fleurs stamp set) in Soft Suede Ink. My only cheat was the border punched piece under the sentiment, since I don't own a single SU border punch. I used my Paper Piercing Tool and Punch Pack to imitate the stitching around the edge of Julie's card since my sewing machine is DOA right now.
