Polka Dotty ......



Happy Easter Sunday everyone (even though we have lost an hour in the UK due to the clock going forward).

Here is a card I created which meets the Less is More Challenge week 269 whose theme is 'Polka Dots'.

I used an easel fold plain white card blank as the base.  I trimmed two white mats and covered one in polka dot Washi tape in various colours on the diagonal to fill the matt.




This was then diecut centrally with a stitched star die and applied over the other matt.





The cut out star was again diecut with a smaller die producing the resultant star which was rotated and stuck in place on foam pads over the star aperture.




The matt was applied onto the base card and the sentiment 'Shine' stamped in Versafine onyx black ink to finish.

  9. I've got plenty of beautiful tapes, don't use them as much as I should as I lack inspiration on what to make with them. Thanks for your inspiration. This creation is fun and colorful and with clever use of tapes.

  13. Just stunning Sid! So clever to not only cut out your star and re-position it, but also to trim your panel to this size - it really packs a punch like that!
