Its A Boy, Baby Banner

Hey crafty ones, I was going to submit this for the Cooking with Cricut design team challenge under layers this week, cause I do have many many layers on each banner piece. But decided against it.  So here is a Baby Banner I finished this week, for my friend's neice who is due in Feb
The first part of the banner "It"s was not done in traditional colors, as per New Momma's request..Using twistel, unraveling it and making custom bows this is the first part of the Banner....

Letter A, also same color theme, and the twistel with custom hanging ability..

The word "BOY" is also done from the rest of the sign, allowing Momma to hang it how and where ever she wishes.
This was done using my cricut, the cartridges, Birthday Bash, New Arrival,and Base Camp a paper trimmer a heavy duty adhesive, inks, pens, and twistel.

First cutting the banner shapes from chipboard, then from cardstock, this is Nana's kids, from DCWV. Then cutting a smaller layer with printed card stock, layered them together. Know, taking my paper trimmer, and cutting strips 1 1/2" x 12" and scoring at every half inch then folding mountain and valley, forming the layer that goes under the words. Use a heavy adhesive as this will need to be very sturdy. Using a hot glue gun, I attached it to the banner base.
For the next step I choose to use base campfor the letters, and layering them on top of a also layered base, which gets attached to the paper rosettes you hot glued. Then with the twistel string the letters how ever you like them to be, make some bows, and I even hung charms and baby booties from the bows. And thats it...Nothing to it. You can then go ahead and add all the personal touches you choose to...
