Let It Snow Banner

Today I'm very excited to share my first Miss Kate Cuttables design team project! 
I'm honored to the join the awesome designers and can't wait to share projects with Miss Kate Cuttables wonderful files.

I always get bummed when I take down all the Christmas decorations so I made a Let It Snow Banner to dress up my home.

Here is a look at the banner: (click to enlarge)

I started out by importing the Tags and Backgrounds svg into the Designer Edition software. 
I ungrouped and deleted the other images and released compound path and deleted the hole of the tag. 
I enlarged to 4.5" wide and cut from Carta Bella - All Bundled Up patterned paper.
Next I cut the snowflake with the swirl for the top of each banner. It is from the Snowflake Set file.
I also cut out the snowflakes from the same set. I added 3.5" circle behind each to make them pop against the chevron paper.
I used silver glitter paper (cut 2X with the cameo) and also inked papers with silver to create a cohesive look.
I wanted to feature the Let It Snow Title on the center banner.
The ends of the banner feature the Cute Mittens File. I cut the image down the middle and applied to the banner.

I added gems to accent, finished off with grommets, added ribbon to connect and also to accent, used foam tape throughout to add dimension, kept the design symmetric.

Here's a close up look at each panel of the banner.
