This week at Heart 2 Heart we're playing with polka dots & stripes. My first thought was the Dotty For You paper pack - of course! I took a moment to look at the inspiration projects, and found the inspiration for a Mother's Day card.
This is the specific item I based my creation on:
I liked the circles on the layout and how the title worked with it. So I pulled out my 1.25" circle punch and used it to punch out pieces of patterned paper. Then I had the Cricut crank out a bunch of 1.5" Colonial white circles.
I spent FOREVER laying out the circles to get them to look just the way I wanted them to. It was a lot trickier than I expected! Some arrangements just did *not* look right.
To embellish I used a few brads & buttons and a pair of flowers.
I really like the original inspiration layout, and might give that a try sometime, too. At least I won't have to mess around with the circles again - Close To My Heart has them perfectly arranged and it would be easy enough just to duplicate what they did.
A little dotty, a little stripey...hope you enjoy it!
