Hi, Renee here today to share a step-by-step tutorial on how I made these summer-themed banner shaped birthday cards using the Fun In The Sun collection and the We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board. So quick to make! I also kept the designs simple so that each banner shaped card can fit into any 4″ x 5.5″ envelope and not require extra postage if you mail them.
I started by trimming the cardstocks down to 4″ x 5.5″ (folded size). I used the We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board to create Flags.
I used this circle shape template and this shape cutter tool to create windows in each card.
I adhered my pattern papers to each card making sure I cut the windows out first.
I cut out a scallop circle border for each window…
and adhered it to each card. I also added an adorable Layered Sticker to each card. They look so cute showing through the card window!
For a final touch, I added a Happy Birthday Rub-On to the front of each card.

I used the From Me to You Roller Stamp to add a short but sweet message inside each card.
