Technique Tip: Painting Perfect Polka Dots

Looking to stretch your Big Shot supplies? Here’s a fun tip that works perfectly with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

First cut out a flower using the Flower Folds Bigz XL Big Shot Die. Here I cut flowers in both Melon Mambo card stock and in a page from the Welcome Neighbor Designer Series Paper Pack (one of the Sale-A-Bration free gifts).

I put each flower in my Polka Dots folder and ran them through my Big Shot to add the texture to the flower die-cuts.

The I flipped my Chocolate Chip Classic Pad upside down and gently ran it across the top of the textured flower. The raised dots picked up the ink, and they really stand out visually.

The flowers stack perfectly on each other and I added a Pretty in Pink Corduroy Button with a cardstock thread (check out that recent stamping lesson) to match the card.
