So when this week's theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog was "finishing touch stamping," I knew that polka dots would fill the bill since I always seem to end up stamping them on my projects somewhere. Here's a Thank You card which I finished with polka dots:
This card was pretty easy to make because I took advantage of some fabulous patterned paper from Prima (their new Cigar Box Secrets line). I then cut out a snowflake panel using Memory Box's Mod Snowflake background die. I cut the snowflake circle shapes apart and adhered them to the edges of my card.
I dabbed on various Distress and Colorbox inks to color my circles and my background a bit, then I added my polka dots! Lest you think I'm totally predictable, these polka dots were added with a polka dot brayer this time, which was a cool new tool I hadn't tried before. I rolled it across my ink pad, then rolled it across my paper. The tool comes with two rollers: one with polka dots and one with stripes and it was a lot of fun to use.
I added a "thanks" made by a Simon Says Stamp die, inked around the edges with brown and black ink and called it a day.
Here are the supplies I used, available at Simon Says Stamp:
