Carta Bella Paper: Yacht Club Banner

Warmer days are ahead of us and that has me in the mood to head to the beach! Until I can get there I am going to bring the beach to me by adorning my home with this nautical banner that I’m sharing on the Carta Bella Paper blog today!

I cut the banner from various papers from the Carta Bella Paper Yacht Club 6×6 paper pad using my Cricut Expression machine and the Birthday Bash cartridge for the banner shapes. I cut the same shapes again from the Carta Bella Black Felt Designer Cardstock, and then adhered the two matching layers together to give each panel a little more weight to support the embellishments I wanted to add to it and to help it hang correctly.

The first panel was embossed using the Yacht Club Anchors embossing folder. I love the texture an embossing folder adds to a project! Next, I added a couple of vertical layered strips and then decorated the pennant with  the darling ephemera, chipboard accents, decorative brads, and enamel dots from the collection.
The second panel is decorated with a boat sticker and a tag, topped with a sparkling decorative brad.

I love the “Seas the Day” die cut on the third panel. The play on words just makes me smile! I wanted to add a little woodgrain tape to the top of the die cut; it was a little too wide, so I simply cut it in half lengthwise. Finally, I added the flag die cuts along the top.

I had fun creating scenes on the last two panels.
For the fourth panel, I cut a dolphin from the red polka dot paper using the Sea Life Animals #2 Die Set. I love how he looks like he is going to jump right off of the banner!
On the last panel, I created a little scene with the boat chipboard. The boat almost seems to be sailing along the banner sticker, and greets you with a friendly “Ahoy!” The enamel dots feel like bubbles or water droplets splashing up from the ocean! As a final touch, I added the Anchors Decorative Tape across the top.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to don my boat shoes and go for a sail. I had so much fun playing with Yacht Club!
