This month one of the card challenges at Get Creative is to make a card using stickers. I love stickers, so this challenge really appealed to me. I ended up making not one but two cards. Both feature animals, and one has a "spots" theme, while the other has a "stripes" theme. The card in this post (pictured above) is the "spots" card; the "stripes" card is in a separate post.
|I used green patterned paper that has a subtle, tone-on-tone polka dotted pattern. To play up the polka dots, I randomly layered round, orange stickers over the green dots. My idea for the dots was based on an idea from Helen Tilbury. She used the dots from "i" and "j" stickers to make confetti. I did that as well, but I took it one step further and used the circles from inside round letter/number stickers (for example, "a" and "6") to make the larger bits of confetti.|
|The orange circles on my card came from Bella Blvd alpha-numeric stickers. When I use these stickers on layouts, I sometimes I include the inner circles, as you can see with the letters "d" and "a" on the old layout reposted above.|
|Other times, however, I do not use the inner circles, as with the letter "p," on the old layout reposted above. Since I don't like to throw away unused supplies, I was happy to be able to use these left over circles on my kangaroo card.|
|The kangaroo and the confetti circles were not the only stickers that I used on this card. I also used banner stickers and mini letter stickers to fashion my sentiment.|
|Additional supplies for inside of card: earth and sentiment stickers (Lily Bee Design), balloon sticker (Basic Grey), pen (Creative Memories).|
