Tutorial for creating a raised banner

Here is a quick tutorial that I had created for All That Scraps last week on how to make a raised banner like this...



What you need is the sentiment you want to use and a two ended fishtail banner.  I used a die, but if you don't have one then you can follow my tutorial here to create your own.



So after I stamped my sentiment onto the centre of my banner, I score two lines on one side of the sentiment.  I use my Score-Pal to do this and you can just about see the score lines in the picture below...



I then turn the sentiment upside down and score at the same place, obviously so that it's on the other side of the sentiment, as highlighted by the black arrow in the picture below...



I then crease at the folds to create the raised banner which you can see better in this photo here...



All that is left to do is to stick it on to your project!  Here is my finished card using with the raised banner and using Mashi's Muffins Farmer Fran and a AmyR Stamps Many Thanks sentiment...



I hope you found my tutorial useful - as usual, if you have any questions leave a comment to this post and I'll get back to you.
