Christmas All Year 2018 - August
« on: August 06, 2018, 09:35:26 AM »
Hmm, what to do, what to do?
We've tried plaids, stripes and wood grain ... how about polka dots?  You can use polka dot paper, a polka dot embossing folder or stencil, or add dots to a stamped character's clothing.  However you want to do it.  Use polka dots as your inspiration this month to get some more Christmas cards made.  Please upload to the Christmas Cards All Year 2018 gallery and link here.

Have fun!

As always, please post any Christmas cards you make this month ... dots or no dots :)

I used a scrap of dotted paper for my card!  http://www.duhnproductions.com/Pics/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=0&pid=4117#top_display_media

I used today’s Tuesday Morning Sketch for this!

I will have family stuff next week so I probably won’t make any other cards till the end of the month.  What I really need to do is count how many I have in total to see!

Thanks for the challenge!

Cute card Heidi!  I bet you have quite a few now. 

I hope everyone has fun with dots.

I love your cards, April!  What a nice variety, from warm and classic to super cute.  Thanks for using polka dots :)

Here are two samples of 5 cards I made from an idea I saved from long ago.  It is from Splitcoaststampers, and fun to make 5 cards at once using this technique. 

It is nice to get back into card making after being away traveling for the last month. 

Thank you so much for this challenge!

Nice to see you posting again, Nora!  Cool cards!  Thanks for posting them.  They look like they are fun to make.  In quilting were these called "whack a stack"?  They look really nice in blue and silver.

Okay, here is one for the polka dot theme.  At the last minute, as usual, it seems!

I only managed to get one done and at the last minute, the cute snowman is from Daria and I tried embossing a shimmer embossing powder on the raised dots but didn't turn out all that well.

Connie, I was wondering how you got that shimmer on the embossed polka dots.  It looks good in the picture!  Your card is adorable. 

Heidi, I love the image you used and you colored it beautifully!  You always find great layouts.  I like the sentiment too.

Thanks to all of you for making Christmas cards using the prompt!  I thought I might get some card making done this month but it didn't happen.  September is another month!  Look for the prompt, coming shortly!
