Papertrey August Blog Hop Challenge

What cute girly inspiration for this month!

I was thinking about this challenge while at the same time going through some old Papertrey Ink blog posts.  'Clear' cards were introduced to me and I wanted to try one! So my brain finally clicked and said 'make a clear card for the Blog Hop!' So here they are:

So thankful I decided to buy the Polka Dot Basics II stamps last month! I embossed the polka dots in gold on the clear the clear plastic (I will not be doing this too often! But I wanted to try. It takes a little more work because the embossing powder wants to stick to ALL the plastic and you have to heat carefully because the plastic will warp. Won't know till you try though!) For the inside panel I mask off the edges and inked them pink and gold embossed 'hello.'

This one I cut slits in the plastic and added a black ribbon and bow.

I did two more quick cards realizing the 'Simply Frame' set also had polka dots!

I used the 'Simply Frame' set, gold and hot pink embossing power, a 'hello' stamp and a gold sticker from my stash.

I'm not a big gold and pink color fan by themselves but for some reason putting the two together makes them irresistibly cute! =) Can't wait to go see all the other cards in the hop! Have a great Monday!


  1. Great cards - love the embossed dots on the clear card!
