Make It Monday #80: Making Garland & CFC67

I watched Ashley's video
http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2012/08/make-it-monday-80-1.html
first thing Monday morning and right away I had the idea to use letters on my banner but wasn't sure just how. Then at 2:30am today, when I trying to sleep. Trying! This came to me. I did use Ashley's advice and sandwiched the letters on my floss. Let me explain if you haven't watched the video yet. She said to cut all your letters twice and 'sandwich' your floss (or whatever you are using) between the two layers. I used white cardstock as my backing to the polka dot letters but before I cut them, I covered the white cardstock with 1 inch score tape which made the 'sandwich' so easy to assemble.  I hope you like my card and have a great week!

Supplies are all PTI: Mat Stack dies 5 & 4, Polka Dot Impression Plate, Think Big Favorites (Birthday), Block Alphabet Die, Bracket is from Half & Half Stamp set, floss,  Hawaiian Shores Ink and CS, Simply Chartreuse Ink, 1 inch score tape.
