A Happy Birthday Banner in JustRite Genuine Fashion!

Good Morning!  This is the final day of JustRite's November Release!  I am in LOVE with the background stamps featured this month and today I made a banner with the new JustRite Cling Genuine Friend Background Stamp!

Here is a look at the Genuine Friend Background Stamp!  I stamped this image three times using Memento Rich Cocoa Ink, after trimming stamped image, I shaded edges with Tim Holtz Scattered Straw distress ink.

A closeup look at the middle flag.  I added a Happy birthday sentiment here to highlight the whole purpose of the banner, obviously to have hanging decor in celebration of special birthdays! Don't you just love the way some of the words in the image are bolded?  It adds that bit of interest to the entire stamp, no?

Such a fun set!  Premium Labels is a clear set featuring 19 stamps.  I stamped the circular star image with Memento Lady Bug Red, and the center Happy Birthday sentiment with Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Blue on Kraft cardstock.  Circle punches were used to cut the circular layers before adhering to banner panels. 

This picture gives you a better look to see how the top panel layer does not lay flat upon the red cardstock.  It is hard to photo, but in real life adds great dimension to the banner.  Divine Twine Baker's String is added to the panel tops and the two outer panel bottom edges.  Again, adding that detail for interest!  Now I have a more masculine banner to hang for the men celebrating birthdays in my life!
