This card is for The Shabby Tea Room #11 Challenge to use tea/tea pots or dots. Well, I'm a dot kinda gal! I love all things dotted: blouses, decor, ribbon, cards, you name it. With that said, one of my favorite embossing folders is the Dotted Swiss! I thought a couple of things came together for the "dotted" theme: circles, lollipops, jewels and brad.
This white card base has a Yoyo Yellow layer followed by a piece of real sweet sparkly paper. Over that I took a piece of Real Red and embossed it then cut the bottom with the Spellbinders Scallop Border die. Another piece of the sparkly paper was cut with a Circle Nestability with a Yoyo Yellow piece cut with a larger Circle Nestability. The smaller circle was matched to the bottom piece, raised on foam adhesive and placed on the yellow circle. This was then raised with more foam adhesive and placed "in line" with the design. A couple of small clear rhinestones were put in the middle of the lollipops and a couple were put in the border cut. After all of this was adhered, a very pretty sheer yellow ribbon was wrapped around the top portion of the card. The "wings" of a red fire circle rhinestone brad were cut off and adhered to the center of the bow.
I love the bright, happy, sugary sweet little card. This designer paper is filled with glitter and sparkle. The picture does NOT do it justice. The lemony yellow almost makes your mouth water!
