Polka Dot Greeting Card Swap
As I mentioned a week or so ago, I joined my first card swap at Splitcoaststampers. Well, I mailed them out and our hostess received the package today! Below is the card that I made. I had a "ball" with this theme! I LOVE polka-dots, and tried to put them into every aspect of the card.
I used an embossing folder with a circle theme, and again used my sanding block to let some of the white come through. I used three pattern papers from My Mind's Eye, and one Chocolate Chip circle that I ran through a polka-dot embossing folder.
These colors aren't showing the best, but are Chocolate Chip, a turquoise that closely resembles Tempting Turquoise, White, and some of the pattern papers have almost a lime green hue to the dots.
I used the Chocolate Chip corduroy button for more polk-dots
And I used three brads for more polka-dot mania!
Here is a final look at my first swap card. Thanks for looking! I'd love to know what you think!
