Less Is More - Polkadots

For details of my In Color Ribbon share please see here

This weeks challenge at Less Is More is POLKA DOTS!!

I've missed the last couple of challenges & was determined that I wouldn't miss another week so went straight to my craft room as soon as I read the challenge.

I've used the new Pennant Parade stamp set to create the Christmas Tree & folded it to give a 3D effect but it also folds flat for postage so would be perfect to mass produce. We made these trees at Jems Training on Saturday & also used the new First Edition papers so I'm hooked on these!!

I've stamped the pennant in Old Olive on Certainly Celery cardstock so the Polkadots show up clearly. Spot the obvious mistake!! yes the tree pot!! I stamped it directly onto the white cardstock but it was wonky!! but it was the last thing to go on the card so had to re stamp it on a separate piece of card.

Do you like the effect with the Striped Grosgrain ribbon?? I've frayed the edges. I like the effect & have used it again on the card I'll show you tomorrow.

Stamp - Perfect Pennant
Cardstock  - Certainly Celery 
Paper - First Edition 
Ink - Old Olive
Tools - Pennant Parade Punch, Jewelry Tag Punch
