cas-ual friday – clean & simple challenge: polka dots!

I’m back this week and excited to be posting a card I made in response to another great challenge from CAS-ual Fridays!


The challenge this week was to create a card using polka dots and this is what came up with:


Super clean & simple with a card base of sky blue + black & white…very crisp! I used an A Muse Studio stamp set called Geek is the new Chic for both the glasses image and the sentiment. This set comes with a coordinating die set as well, so cutting out the polka dot border for the eye glasses was a breeze…I actually cut two glasses shapes, one in onyx polka dot and one in white, I then stamped the glasses image on the white die cut and trimmed the edges a little bit closer so that when I mounted it on the onyx polka dot die some of the dots would show up! I used some foam squares to pop the glasses off the page and finished off the design with some onyx polka dot organdy ribbon.

There is still time to join in the challenge fun over at CAS-ual Fridays!!  Grab some polka dots and get busy!!
