Make It Monday #119: Flagged Borders

It's such a miserable day here that I was delighted to see this weeks MIM was such a cheery project and was determined to use some nice bright colors to make up for the grey skies.
The colors I used throughout are PTI Lemon torte and Limeade ice as I loved the way they looked in last months blog hop.

I stamped a couple of different background stamps onto white and lemon torte card stock and then cut them into banners which I stuck onto a 5 1/2" square card base.
I cut the medallion out using the Cricut "elegant edges" cartridge in a size to just accommodate the frame from PTI tag-its #10, which is also where the sentiments are from. I colored the "happy" in with a yellow copic and used foam pads to place the medallion in the center of the banner circle.
For a while I had a ribbon bow in the corner but it seemed to overpower the card - or is it just that I'm not great with embellishments?


  1. I like your card very much! I also like it better without the bow-my eyes were drawn to the bow, not the gorgeous banner round. I may have to do this for a baby card I need to make as I have so many pink and blue scraps-good way to use them up. Thanks for the inspiration!!!!!

  2. What a great use of those little flags, I would have never thought of a circle. I love the bow, but without the bow those little flags stand well on their own. Thank you for the inspiration!

  3. fun card and imaginative idea - using the banners as rays of sunshine.

  4. Great idea to create a circle border. Very cute!

  5. Such a wonderful idea to make a sunburst like this! Love the colors and this is a beautiful creative card.

  6. So many creative elements, like the happy banner within the circle. And all the patterned papers and stamped flags. So clever in a circle!

  7. This is so fun, it reminds me of the sun!!
