Basic Gray Polka Dot Fun!

There is something about the basic gray polka dot designer series paper that I find so charming.  I was flipping through the packet of paper and it just shouted out at me to make something with it! OK, paper can’t talk, nor shout, but I think you get the idea….

Basic Gray Polka Dots

The polka layer is cut to 4.25″ x 3″ and I added embellishments using the sweetheart punch in watermelon wonder, the decorative label punch in peekaboo peach, the swirly thinlit in tempting turquoise, and a circle in bermuda bay.  The sentiments  are from the thoughtful banners stamp set, with coordinating duet banner punch.

It’s a 5×7 card so we can include the names of all the families who contributed to the teacher’s gift.  I also used the envelope maker with coordinating Bold Brights DSP.

Personalized Notecards

I had the opportunity to make some personalized notecards for an adorable little girl in my daughters’ class who will be celebrating her birthday this weekend.  The mom expressed among other things that she likes fancy notecards — all I heard was FANCY NOTECARDS.  You mean I can make her gift doing what I love to do?!??!personalized note cards

So here you have it.  I made a total of 10 cards, 2 of each color.

I used the brights color collections DSP, silver glimmer paper, adhered to thick white cardstock.  The circles are 1″ and 1 1/4″, using the circle punches on p. 165 of the annual catalog.  I used dimensionals to give the letter a little lift over the card.  The letter “e” was created using the Big Shot.

Happy crafting!!
