Merry Monday #128 {Polka Dots and/or Stripes!}

Monday, September 29, 2014

Hi there and happy Monday! Today I am participating in this week's Merry Monday Challenge. The theme for this week is to use either polka dots or stripes or both. I chose to use both.

I started with a white card base. For my polka dots I dry embossed the top background layer and used a piece of red and white polka dot paper for the bottom background layer. I cut a piece of white card stock and stamped candy cane stripes across the bottom of it and then stamped my sentiment above it. I die cut a cup and two candy canes and adhered them to my card. I really like the combination of the stripes and polka dots. Thanks for stopping by!

My Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Candy Cane Christmas, PTI Rustic Wreath
Dies: PTI Candy Cane Christmas
Paper: Recollections 110 lb white card stock, PTI Pure Poppy
Ink: PTI Pure Poppy, Memento Dew Drops Tuxedo Black
