Polka Dots for CAS-ual Fridays

This week DeNami Design is proud to sponsor the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. The new theme? The Girl Fridays are calling it the "Sweet Spot," and it's all about polka dots.


Some of the DeNami DT gals are playing along with the challenge to show off our CAS polka dot creations featuring none other than DeNami stamps! I made two cards with the same design but different color schemes. I couldn't decide which I liked better, so I'll share them both!




I recently realized that I didn't have *any* "thinking of you" cards left in my stash. Because those are the most versatile (you can make them fit for get well, sympathy, birthday, tough times, anniversary), I made a note to make more really soon. And I love having one-layer cards in my stash, too. So easy to write in and mail! Those were the two main criteria that guided my creating, along with the polka dot requirement, of course. I used just two DeNami stamps (Medium Polka Dots and the "thinking of you" stamp from the All Occasion Sentiments set) and a single sheet of cardstock to make both one-layer cards. Well, and some ink, too!

This challenge runs through Thursday, June 14, until noon EDT. The prize is a $25 DeNami Design gift certificate! I hope you'll play along. Just remember to use polka dots and keep it clean and simple. :)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you find a little slice of bliss somewhere in your day today, too.
Emily

What's not to love about gradient polka dots?? I love both sets of colors, and yep, they're the perfect stash cards -- cute AND useful!

OMG, this is super, Emily. I love those polka dots. We both used them today. I think there should be a National Polka Dot Day, don't you? :-)

Yessss! I *knew* someone else had the same thought that I did, and it's Emily N. These dots remind me TOTALLY of the dot candy from my childhood. How fun, fun, fun!
