Banner card and a share

August 24, 2012 at 5:47 pm 19 comments

The CAS-ual Fridays CFC67 challenge this week is to use banners and flags and it is timely because I’ve been wanting to make a banner print-and-cut with my Silhouette. The bicycle built for two is from Lauren Ashpole’s awesome Bikes dingbat font. There’s a little more vintage model I didn’t see until after I’d made this that I would use next time. The grass is washi tape I ran through a border punch, probably not worth the trouble versus just using paper.

I am sharing the banner files with text paths so you can do this by just adding and editing your own text. Enjoy and let me see what you make with it.

    Hi Kay I would love to use your banner file but, having downloaded it, I cannot find which software I need to open it? I have a Cricut and also MTC.

    • 15. Kay  |  September 11, 2012 at 2:04 pm

      Sorry, the file is for Silhoutte Studio only.
