I am here with a Simple Card.  I used the watercolor paper with distress inks, which i already made and posted with one of my previous card... I made a cut using my KNK Zing and layered it....

Tools Used: KNK Zing Digital Cutter, Fiskars Paper Trimmer, Corner Chomper, 
Martha Stewart Scoring Board, Cutterbee scissors

Challenges Entered:
The Sisterhood of Crafter - Happy Birthday
Party time tuesdays - Die cuts

this is for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch

I was searching for a tute for making a banner for this card , i couldnt it find.. may be banner is not the right word? not sure...  i actually designed a cut design in Make the cut software... then i decided to jus make them manually.... I am here sharing how to make banner...

1. Take a  cardstock and trim it to 9"x1/2" (You can test it different sizes)

 2. Keep the strip of CS ready and take your scoreboard and small strips of making tape or any removable tape

3. Place the CS cross (I have kept one end in the origin and other end 2 inch approx away) and tape it. As they are thin, this ll hold in place while you score.

 4. Score it carefully @ 1", 1.5", 3.5", 5.5", 7.5" 8"

5. You will have 6 score/fold lines and 7 faces.

6. I showing you here to the folds are made. Note it carefully, which part to fold inside which one to outside. 

7. After you fold it. V cut the ends with a scissors.

Now the 2 fold banner is ready, you can stamp it , distress it and give a nice look to it... You can also make 3 fold banner in the same method. 

Here is the 3 fold banner i have inked it with distress ink pads, One side with Vintage Photo and other side with walnut stain.

Hope this tutorial helped you.
