Scrapology - March Card Challenge

This month, design team member Karen Leonard has set the card challenge on the Scrapology blog. Karen has challenged blog readers to create a card incorporating polka dots and/or circles.

I made a 6" x 6" square card and decided to create an origami dress made from black and white polka dot paper. Video instructions for making the dress can be found here

I glued a mini wire coat hanger embelishment to the back of the finished dress to give the impression of it being hung up and also added a row of black self adhesive gems at the waist. The dress was then mounted onto another square of polka dot paper which had already been matted on a piece of black card. Silver coloured metal corners, more black gems, a handbag charm and a peel off sentiment finished off the card.

Tip: I had no black peel offs so I used a black permanent marker pen to recolour a silver one.

Pop on over to the Scrapology blog to see all this months design team cards and the wonderful prize you can win if you take part in the challenge.
