Mini Boo Banner

Today I want to quickly share with you a little banner I've made for Halloween.  It's not a huge one; in fact, it only measures about 18" across as it's photographed.  The letters could be separated more but I think it would look a bit awkward.

The base circles that the rosettes and letters sit upon were cut at 4.5" using Cricut Elegant Edges.  I decided to offset the shadow layer rather than lining up the scallops.....just to be different.  I like the effect and will probably use it again for more projects.  The letters were cut at 2.25" using Cricut Old West.  I really like that cartridge although I've not used it as often as I should.  

For loads of dimension, I added rosettes to each of the circles.  I scored at half an inch for the folds in the rosettes so they would be super tall.  Pop dots were used to mount the letters onto their shadows.  Tim Holtz distress inks in Walnut Stain and Spiced Marmalade were used.

Originally I had intended to list this for sale in my Etsy shop....not sure that will happen though.  It's just so cute I think it needs to hang from my mantel.  Guess I'll have to do another one to sell. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a great day!

The 2nd photo is to show the dimension the rosettes added not just how many pop dots I like to use.
So just pretend you don't see all of those because I do use a bunch.
