So a few years back, I made a similiar banner for my holiday cards. It had a lot of gold, but that was not my decorating color scheme for the holidays. I love the bright red and greens. So I decided to make a new banner for the holidays. This time I did in the color I love. I used the American Crafts Hot Cocoa paper, some snowflake wood elements and reindeer ribbon I had in my craft stash. I used twine, ribbon and eyelets from my retired Stampin' Up! stash. The mitten is a die from Impression Obsession. The letters come from the Serif Essentials Sizzex which are now retired. The banner pieces I freeform made with a little trial and error. To keep the twine in place. I die cut two mittens and placed the twine and string in between, then I used my hot glue gun to keep everything in place.
