Polka Dot Basics, Part 3

Well, we are home safe and sound after four days in Maryland. Yay!

And now for another polka dot card, this one using my favorite of the polka dot stamps...the smallest dots. We've seen retro and faux collage polka dots, and now we see sweet and traditional ones.

They are just so darling...crisp, clean, and open. My only regret with this card is that I don't have a blue ribbon with white polka dots. THAT would have been perfect. Instead, I settled for black-and-white gingham, which is fun in its own way.

The ribbon is threaded through two holes, each tail put through from front to back, and then threaded out the opposite hole from back to front. The dimensional tape used to attach the panel leaves space for the back of the ribbon so everything lays nice and evenly with no unsightly bulges.

Who wants unsightly bulges on a card? No one.

So whatever will I do with the polka dots tomorrow? You'll just have to wait and see. But tomorrow's card is my favorite of the lot. Don't miss it!

Mercy, grace, peace, and love,

stamps: Papertrey Polka Dot Basics, Birthday Bash Sentiments
ink: Archival black, Memento Bahama blue
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: gingham ribbon, foam tape, hole punch
