The accordian pleated fans are made from textured paper. I stamped them with a mixture of elegant damask patterns and tiny country prints. Between the fans I attached small chipboard stars, also stamped with background stamps.
The letters are inked in Heavenly Blue ink and then distressed with Desert Sand ink around the edges. I painted the letters with decopauge glue and then coated them in Prisma Glitter, which allows the ink colors to show through, as well as giving a greenish-blue cast to the letters.
Chipboard snowflakes are left white and distressed with more Desert Sand ink, then glittered. Rhinestones add extra sparkle.
You'll notice this banner is a little less accessorized than the previous banners. Once I began creating it, I really loved the simplicity of the pale color scheme with the distressing, plus the touch of sparkle. Every time I added more embellishements they just seemed overdone. I imagine that at Christmas time there is plenty of overly-decorative items already on display, perhaps this simply adorned banner will stand out.
