While contemplating my collection of border punches, I got the idea to create this card:
It's so me! All that crisp white space, a lovely little embellishment from Doodlebug, and a word in a fun font. The scalloped curve at the bottom adds a bit of interest, but I wondered if the scallops faded into too much white and needed to be emphasized a bit.
So I pulled out my red Memento marker, opened up the pen tip, and added some dots to each scallop.
The dotted version definitely shows increased unity between the elements: the single holly berry, the dot over the "j", and the dots of the decorative border work nicely together.
But I really prefer the plain version for its simplicity. What do you think? Dots or no dots?
The strip was cut to fit into the Martha Stewart border punch. It's 1 7/8" wide. It's positioned on the one-third line vertically, and falls just short of the bottom third line horizontally.
Here are the Doodlebug holly stickers, just in case you want to know what to look for. They are adorable!
