LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card. It took forever to create those banners, but OH MY GOSH was it worth it! I'm just so tickled about this card.
I hand cut the individual pennants out of a bunch of different retired DSPs - small patterns were important, since the pennants are so small. I folded the paper and then cut the two long sides, so when unfolded it was in the shape of a diamond. That way, I could fold the pennants around the thread so they actually hang from the thread - clear as mud, right? The thread is taped down underneath the layer, and the pennants are individually glued/popped up with dimensionals. Lots of little fussy pieces. :)
