It was my turn to post a project over at
The Crafty Card Gallery this month.
Jennifer had asked us to incorporate Polka Dots.
That was a great challenge for me because…..
Polka Dots are very near and dear
to my heart because my mother LOVED them!
So any time I see them, especially on clothes, I think of her!!
So I incorporated my mom’s love for dots and how much
I love her, miss her, and think of her on my card itself.
What I have done here, is taken two pieces of ribbon and
glued them in behind the negative part of a heart that I cut out using my Cricut.
(Make sure the ribbon is tight.)
To give it some stability and so that you can’t see through it,
I adhered it to another piece of white cardstock to give it a backing.
Trimmed it out with some Pool Party and Basic black paper.
Added a MS heart border punch to a strip of black to add some interest.
The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.
And finally, I took the sentiment and punched it out with a great
SU Modern label punch, and bordered it 2 more times.
This is a great trick. Punch out the label punch again
and then cut it in half and put it on opposite ends.
All you see is the ends anyway and it looks like one
continuous piece. If that doesn’t make sense….drop me a
comment and I will explain it better.
I used this interesting sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch and these
great colors from Dynamic Duos to spark this card!
This card was a lot of fun to create!
Thanks for your continuous support….and make sure you
stay tuned because I see a Blog Candy Giveaway in the very near future!
