Now, for my projects.

Using Polka Dot Background and Holiday Lyrics, I created a clean and simple holiday card in non-traditional colors. Aren’t those polka dots just adorable? The MISTI helps me to get a crisp look every time. I had to mask the sentiment to make it fit into the little frame.

I matched it with a little goodie bag. These bows have been a huge hit in the crafting world. Imagine saving on buying real bows (which people throw away anyway) and stamping them instead!

Using the same stamps as the first card, I created a shaker card in white + black + gold. Shaker contents are linked below.

Be sure to check out the projects from the design team and leave comments on all the blogs for your chance to win one of the $25 gift certificates to The Ton shop. What are your plans for World Cardmaking Day? I wish I could play along more throughout the day, but we’ll see if I find time to squeeze in some coloring 🙂 Follow me on Instagram to see in case I do! Have a great day.
