Polka Dot Sailing!


Stampin' Up! has been increasing its range of individual stamps and there are some gorgeous ones in the new Mini-Catalogue. This card is made with the lovely "Sail Away", and it's a fantastic card for the men in your life.

 The image has a really nice, sketchy quality to it, which means that it looks just as good if you don't want to add any colour, as it does if you colour it in. This one was stamped in Early Espresso and simply mounted onto a mat of the same colour cardstock, having edge-punched the side using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.

Don't you just love the polka dot background? I think it's fabulous - and it's done using the Big Shot and the "Perfect Polka Dots" embossing folder (another Stampin' Up! exclusive). It's fab for adding a little bit of texture and just lifts a plain card without being too highly decorated. I can see I'm going to be using this one a LOT!

Thanks for visiting - see you soon!
