MFT December Creative Challenge: Make It A Banner Year!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It's time for the MFT December Creative Challenge!  This month, the MFT Design Team is going to Make It A Banner Year!  YAY!  I love making banners so I was quite excited about this month's Creative Challenge!

OK, this was SO difficult to get a good picture of...first of all, it's really big (lol) and I couldn't get close enough to get the details and still get the full banner in the shot.   Hopefully you can tell that it is a Happy New Year Banner!  I thought it would be fun to add this one to my collection!

I have a few closeups so you can see the detail!  Each panel (there are 16 in total) are created with the same layers.  From the bottom up, I've used:

1. Black Licorice cut using the Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX Die-Namics;
2. Smooth White cut using the Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX Die-Namics;
3. Gold glitter paper cut with the 3/8 Rosette Die-Namics (two panels for each rosette);
4. Black Licorice cut using the new Stitched Circle STAX Die-Namics.

The Smooth White panels that I cut with the Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX Die-Namics were stamped with the Sheet Music Background and gold ink.  I spelled out "Happy New Year" using the High Rise Alpha Upper Die-Namics using the same gold glitter paper.

On the panels that do not have a letter, I added glasses of champagne (so appropriate for New Years no?), cut from Smooth White Cardstock and gold glitter cardstock using the Layered Champagne Glass Die-Namics.  I added bows to either end of the banner cut from Black Licorice Cardstock using the Dainty Bows Die-Namics.

Here are the MFT products I've used on my card:
