Seeings Spots


This is kind of a take off on the old spotlighting technique.  I had the idea while lying awake last night...too hot to sleep and boy am I feeling it today!  I think that this card looks even cooler in real life because the edges of the cardstock aren't quite as pronounced as they show up in the photo.  Anyway, really happy with the fun look of this card...and boy howdy (yes, I just said howdy!) do I love those BRIGHT colors! :)




I tried to line up the dots as closely as possible, they are off a teeny bit but are still pretty close! I used very thin pop dots so that the panels don't stick up very high.  They are only 1/16" thick.


This was really a fun card to make and you better believe I'm going to try it again!  And, of course, it is also simple to do!

You know how I almost overwhelmed you with cards I made using PTI's "Distressed Stripes" set recently?  Well, when I'm on a roll, I'm on a roll I guess!  I made 3 more simple, simple cards using "Dot Spot" too and I'll be sharing those with you over the course of the next few days.

As always, thank you for visiting my blog!  You guys are the best!
