This card was created for the fun "connect the dots" sketch that Papertrey Ink used to celebrate the release of their BittyDot paper. That second anniversary celebration really set a new level of superiority for blog events! While I have a huge wish list of PTI stamps and other products, I do not actually own any. . . YET! So instead I turned to dot-related stamps from my own collection to honor the dots theme.
I started with SU "Dotted" background stamp using dark olive dye ink on an Old Olive background. The white flowers were punched, then I cut between the petals towards the center and curled the petals up to give them some dimension and attached with mini black brads. The center panel uses stamps from the SU "Be Happy" set. The border punched panels have a punched dot in each scallop, and the dotted ribbon finished off the theme!
Polka dots of any size are fun, and I enjoyed mixing up all the different scales on this card! What are some of your favorite polka dot creations?
