Elegant Polka Dots

This week’s challenge at Classy Cards ‘n Such is Polka Dot Christmas! There is an inspiration photo for you, and the colors from the photo I chose to work with were white, yellow (gold), and copper which appears on the red curtain’s polka dots. As always we have a prize from the store for a lucky winner and the classiest participating card will be awarded too!

For today’s card I used Spellbinders 2012 Holiday Tree to die cut a window on a piece of White Pearl Linen, which I die cut next with A2 Matting Basics A. Then I dry embossed the white layer with a polka dot embossing folder, similar to Crafts-Too Dots embossing folder.

I also die cut a piece of Precious Metals Craft Foil by Spellbinders in copper with A2 Matting Basics A, and dried embossed it the same way I did with the white layer. I mounted the white piece on top of the craft foil, but not before wrapping a piece of gold cording across them and tying a little bow. I adhered it all to a light brown card base and embellished the card with many Baby Rhinestones – Silver.

I hope you find time to play along our challenge this week. I also motivate you to invite your friends to play along. The more participants, the more chances there are to win a prize from the store!
