Kaleidoscope ~ Perfect Pennants

Here is project 3 of 4 in the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper (DSP) challenge!  This is my favorite creation with the new DSP simply because I love the bold colors and the pennants! I also think that the big bold pattern on the top of the card along with the smaller, more subtle pattern on the bottom of the card really work well together! So let’s talk about how to make this card…

Start with a piece of bermuda bay cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of basic black cardstock. Cut a 3 3/4 x 3 inch piece of one of the bold patterned kaleidoscope DSP and secure it to the top half of the black cardstock. Cut a 3 3/4 x 2 inch piece of one of the smaller patterned kaleidoscope DSP patterns (I used the polka dots) and secure it to the bottom of the black cardstock. Run a piece of the basic gray 1/4 inch striped grosgrain ribbon between the two different DSP patterns and secure to the back of the black cardstock. Using two different banner framelits…cut out one black one and then cut out a white one that is two sizes smaller than the black.  Stamp one of the perfect pennant sentiments on the white one…stamp a strip of polka dots across the top of the pennant. I embellished the pennant with a hand stamped star!  What do you think?  Do you like the bold colors and patterns in this DSP?
