Celebrate


I've been having fun in the studio creating cards with Courtney's new stamp designs, so here's another card using For the Love of Dots by Practicing Creativity. This set of stamps was a must-have for me; so versatile. I love the look of heat embossing on darker papers. I especially love the look on black cardstock!

I used my Silhouette to cut the black circle with holes perfectly placed for brads or eyelets. I've had this Silhouette design cut for several weeks, so it was a good use on this card to mimick the dot designs using silver brads.

Have a good one!
