Well, here it is Thursday and here's my weekly Christmas card for the Merry Monday Challenge #21. I also used the The Paper Players Challenge #96 - Polka Dots.
The card base is Wild Wasabi card stock. I punched two strips of Red Glimmer paper with the Scallop Edge Border Punch and attached them to the back of a piece of the retired glimmer polka dots Holly Berry designer paper. This was then attached to the card front. Another piece of glimmer paper was cut out with the Big Shot and the larger scallop
circle from the Perfect Pennants Bigz die and added it to the card.. I heat embossed the polka dot ornament from the Delightful Decorations stamp set on Very Vanilla card stock with VersaMark and Wild Wasabi embossing powder. It was punched out with the Ornament punch and popped up on the glimmer scallop with dimensionals. The polka dot center from the same stamp set was heat
embossed on Very Vanilla card stock with VersaMark, Real Red ink and clear embossing powder. I punched it out with the 3/4" Circle Punch, added a Wild Wasabi glimmer brad and centered it on the ornament with a dimensional. A piece of Real Red ribbon was tied in a knot and attached to the ornament. The sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was heat embossed on Very Vanilla card stock with VersaMark, Real Red ink and clear embossing powder. I punched it out with the Word Window Punch and attached with dimensionals to glimmer paper that was punched out with the Modern Label Punch. Dimensionals were used to attach the sentiment to the card. There you have it - lots of polka dots and even more glimmer. Have a great evening, hopefully enjoying some creative fun.
