I think this is probably my first totally PTI card. It's not perfect, but not *too* bad for my first time using the background polka dots. I didn't notice it until I'd sewn all around so I just left it--'course it *would* be right at the top, LOL! I guess that just means I'll have to practice with them lots more to get it right ;-) And I love the gridded paper for using the Guidelines and Mega Guidelines stamps. It's a HUGE help! And did I mention I love the Guidelines--mega and otherwise? LOVE the little patterned paper I made. Yep, I'll be doing more of this, for sure.
Anyway, I stamped the polka dots with Spring Moss on Aqua Mist paper and the Guide Lines and Mega Guide Lines with Spring Moss and Aqua Mist on the Guidelines paper. I stamped the focal image from the new Blooming Button Bits on PTI white paper with Spring Moss and added Aqua Mist Vintage buttons.Then I cut/embossed it with a Classic Oval Nestabilities die and sponged the edges with Vintage Touch ink in Chai Tea. I tied Aqua Mist saddle stitched ribbon around in a bow and added the tag, cut/embossed with a Spellbinders Tags Trio die. I guess that's it. These background stamps really are a ton of fun! Can't wait to try them out again!
