National Polka Day But With a Twist Blog Hop!

Umpa. Umpa. Umpa. We are celebrating national polka day but adding a twist. Polka is to music and to DOT so we have created things that have POLKA DOTS on them. How fun!  Instead of making Polka music our talented crafters have made things with dots on them.

Here are my polka dots - I made a card holder and cards!

To make this cute little card holder, I used a paper pack called La Belle Vie -- just LOVE these colors!!  I also used our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge to cut out the card holder.  You can find the image on page 47, B7, Accent 3 < u > and Shift, Accent 3 < U > cut at 6".  The sentiment "Merci Beaucoup" comes from the zip strip at the top of the La Belle Vie paper.  

I used a stamp from the August Stamp of the Month - Baroque Borders for the corner image.  The matte below the sentiment "Thanks for Everything" was cut from the Artiste -- page 33, A3, Accent 3 < 3 > at 2 1/4" x 4".  The oval was also cut from the Artiste -- page 36, A6, Accent 2 < 6 > cut at 1 1/4".  That sentiment comes from the stamp set that comes with the Artiste bundle.

The "bling" on the card comes from Boutique Assortment.    The bling on the oust of the card holder came from Sparkles Flourishes.  I'm just loving all my bling, bling!
