Red Polka Dots with Yellow and Teal

Today's card is for this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge: customizing patterned paper.  I like the red and white polka dot paper with the extra pops of yellow and teal stamping.  With some embossed dots for the card base, striped twine, and a diagonal "hello," it makes a bright and cheerful card.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) summer sunrise (yellow), tropical teal, and aqua mist, and the polka dot print from PTI pure poppy (red) "+ white basics" patterned paper.
  • Embossing folder is Darice dot point. 
  • Die is PTI wonderful words: hello, with two colors layered and offset a bit for a shadow effect.
  • Twine is marigold (yellow) and Caribbean (turquoise) stripe from The Twinery.
  • Yellow and teal circles are stamped onto the red and white patterned paper.  I used large dots from PTI confetti toss, stamped with summer sunrise and tropical teal ink cubes.  
  • Technique:  Since there's no individual stamp for the open circle (teal), I used a cluster stamp and tried to ink just the one circle.  To catch any stray ink, I made a mask by punching a 1/2" circle in scrap paper to lay on top of the red patterned paper. 
Created for Operation: Quiet Comfort.

Isn't it fun to see how you can change up pattern paper by adding just a few stamps? I like your "new" polka dot paper!
