CCEE Dots and Gingham


It's Monday, and that means it's time to upload a card that I was challenged to make by Cindy Haffner for our CCEE group. This week we were to make a card with polka dots and gingham ribbon. I, being the blonde that I am (well, my roots are...) made a card for next weeks challenge instead, (we get the whole month ahead of time) so I guess I'm a week ahead now. That's why I'm late to the arrival today. Today is my In-Law's 53rd wedding anniversary, so I made this card this morning.

To see what the other girls did with their dots and gingham, check out our new blog:
CCEE Stampers.

I started off by picking out my paper (had to have polka dots) and went from there with the colors and images. This gorgeous paper is from My Minds Eye...the textures, colors, and prints are all soooo gorgeous. I got them at my local LSS and am in LOVE. You'll be seeing a lot from me with these papers, cause I can't get enough of them. This card uses the papers called Je Taime from the Tres Jolie line. YUM!!

The piercing was done with a piercing template that I got from Ellen Hutson's webstore, and the scallops were made with my slit punch from Stampin up. The small scallops along the bottom were done with an adaptable blade for my paper trimmer. Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:
Stamps - Hero Arts Treasure the Moments
Paper - My Minds Eye
Ink - Adirondack Slate
Accessories - Charm (Heart & Soul), Pearls, Primas, Corner Ticket Punch, Slit Punch, Gingham Ribbon (Stampin' Up)

Very pretty and worth the wait! I love the paper piercing, it really adds a lot to the card. I think it is the perfect contrast to the large, fun polka dots. Great job!
