Valentine's Banner

Don't you love how sometimes a mistake turns into something you love?  I've seen lots of banners that people have made and have thought about getting the pennant die, but I wondered how much I'd really use it.  Well, the other day when I went to make the Hanging Heart (that I posted here), I forgot that when you use a die with score lines you need to only cut one at a time.  I cut 4 and was left with two petal cones that were falling apart.  That's when it hit me that I could use the separate triangle pieces for a banner.  Here's the result: 
Big hearts were cut with the Hearts Framelits.  Letters were punched with the Heart Punch and framed with a heart from the retired Movers and Shapers (some parts of which are still on the Clearance Rack).

 Close up of the heart on the left.  It was stamped with the You Are Loved Stamp Set.
 Close up of the heart on the right.  The arrow is from the retired Game Spinner Hands, which are still available on Clearance Rack.  The smallest heart was punched with the Heart to Heart punch and the Chocolate Chip one behind it was cut out with my Paper Snips. 

Close up of an individual letter.   The letters were stamped with the Morning Post Alphabet stamp set.  The Designer Series Paper is First Edition.  The brads are retired (but you guessed it - still on the Clearance Rack).  The pennant piece was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.
I was very excited about how the whole banner came together.  I hope you've enjoyed it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

What an awesome mistake--way to make it work. I agree I often want that die too but don't think I would use it more than once or twice. This is fabulous!
