This card was so fun to put together! I used Jen’s sketch (sfytt 3-7-09). I wanted to do something different for the top-most layer and that is how I ended up choosing to use PTI’s It’s a Celebration – that and I really want to try to use my PTI sets more! I tend to get them, make a card or two and forget them (cuz the next month’s release is here!) Actually, I do that with all my new stamps!
I like to use PTI colors when I stamp with PTI images, so I checked my paper stash and realized I hadn’t even opened my Polka Dot Parade pack! I liked the purple/green combo, so I went with that.
I had fun stamping the banner – that is such a fun image to play with! I popped a few layers and added some Glossy Accents (CE-like stuff) to the dots on the present. The final touch was the bow made with the PTI twill.
On the inside, I used the same paper, added a cupcake, and embellished with more CE dots. The dots are very subtle, but I wanted to keep the dot theme going without taking over the inside.
