To Dive For - Whimsie Wednesday Challenge


Pin ItToday's card was created for the latest Whimsie Wednesday Challenge, where Sheri has challenged Whimsie Doodles fans/readers to create a project using Polka Dots. The adorable little diver image is just one of the NEW July images from Whimsie Doodles - Diving Koale. He also has a cute female counterpart - Diving Leah.

This layout for this card was inspired by THESE cards; one of my many pins over at Pinterest. To get started I laid out the Diving Koale image and sentiment on my computer, so everything would be in the correct place after folding, then printed it onto cardstock.

To go along with the polka dot theme, I used various colors of polka dotted papers to create the border across the bottom. Each square measured .75". After coloring Koale in using colors take from the patterned papers, I created the brackets for the sentiment. These were created by adhering red checked paper to chipboard, then cutting it with a bookplate die.

You still have a couple of days to play along, so make sure to get all of the details HERE on how to link up your polka-dot creation and be entered to win a FREE Whimsie Doodles image!
Just the details… (1) Cut the center part from the bookplate to create brackets for the sides of the sentiment, (2) Koale was colored with COPIC markers, (3) Placed various colors ofpolka dotted paper squares across the bottom.
