ICRC12 {DOTS and/or STRIPES + TAG IT}

Hello Everyone!!!

With the festival of lights coming to an end, my lights turned off on me too.... :(

And now I'm back to something near NORMALCY... :)
Hence without wasting anytime, I sat down to complete my unfinished chores..... And this post is one of them....

New MONTH New CHALLENGE on ICR!!!!

And this time, we have our DT, Shalini Maskara, challenging us with something so fun & something I love & enjoy a lot...... :D

Here are the DEETS for you.....




CHALLENGE + COMBO TWIST: Dots AND/OR Stripes + Tag It {By Itself or Onto the project}


And before I come to my project, I would like to share a little snippet to it.....

With the festive mood hooked on to me, I could not or rather did not wanna stress myself into a TAG, something I seriously LOVE & ENJOY making.... Hence stuck to a card & just tagged it along.... But still not wanting to keep it plain & simple, tried a different shape from the usual.....

My hubby loved the tag a lot.... :D And his words fill my LIFE with the freshness & energy to PURSUE my PASSION..... :p

And here is my inspiration.....

The Prep :

Baby Pink CS for the base from Fabriano.....
Black CS from SU! for the layers & pocket on the inside.....
The Pink DP is from the Be Mine - Echo Park Collection..... {Finally sustained the excitement of running it through my paper cutter}
Heat Embossed the damask design in black on the DP, from the Inkadinkadoo damask collection stamp set.....
Cut out a scalloped circle aperture through the card front.....
And adhered the scalloped cut frame from the card topper, with the help of pop dots from ITSY BITSY, to give the card front & the frame a dimension.....
Popped up the central scalloped cut above the pouch on the inside of the card.....
And stamped the birthday sentiment from the Fiskars birthday sentiment collection stamp set.....
Die cut the flourish with big shot dies.....
Bug embossed the CS for the pouch on the inside with vintage wallpaper embossing folder from SU!
Lined the pouch on the top with a piece of scallop punched trim..... DP from SU!
Added loads of small gemstones {self adhesive bindi stickers} with a little doodled dots.... to complete the card front.....
