LorI Whitlock Creative Team - The Story of Fall Banner

Hello Lori Whitlock friends! It's Tya here up on the blog today. To officially welcome Fall to our home, I decided that a cute banner was just what my mantle needed! So I decided to use the adorable Story of Fall line to make this fun and festive project. Let me show you what I did!
So I found a banner base that I liked and cut 4 of them out on my Silhouette. The file I used didn't have 2 holes punched in it to string the twine through , so I just made a couple and placed them on the top two corners of the base. I then covered the bases with a few fun pattern papers from the Story of Fall Collection.
I then cut out 4 ovals and used my Silhouette Sketch Pens to draw an orange border on the ovals. Then I used the darling LW Homemade font and cut out the letters F A L L out of brown cardstock and added them to the top of the cream ovals. I then cut out a few leaves. 
 If you notice on the leaves, there is a pattern embossed on them. I was able to get my hands on the new Silhouette Curio machine and had a great time using the embossing tool with the Curio to get the patterns on the leaves. I found some really beautiful shimmery specialty paper that took the embossing wonderfully!
I added some chipboard elements from the Story of Fall collection to the banner shapes.

I also added some buttons and twine to the leaves for some added texture.
 That's all there is too it! I had alot of fun with this project and hopefully have inspired you to make this fun banner to get the fall season underway in your home too! Happy Crafting!
