Darling Dots GSG Swap

Darling Dots GSG Swap

I heard Becky put the swaps from the Great Swaps Girls back in the mail to us today, and I wanted to share the first one I did for the new catty swap. Darling Dots is a new level 1 hostess set, and I thought it would look great with a dotted background created with the Texturz plate, also new in this catalog. The dotted patterned paper is the reverse side of a DSP sheet that has green and black skulls all over it (I can’t see myself ever using that side on a card!).

The cupcake was inked up with markers and stamped on glossy white paper. The tag was created in the Big Shot first, then stamped on with the help of the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (and some Dotto to keep the tag from moving). I tied it to the striped grosgrain ribbon with red hemp.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Vera this is awesome! I can’t wait to get it! I’m so glad you used the Texturz plates! I meant to and totally forgot until my card was completely together- duh! Isn’t that cupcake just adorable? I will be using it again!
