Curtain Call is hosting a red, white & blue challenge. I have made enough flags this season so I decided to try something different. To date, I have not found a favorite use for Neat & Tangled’s Punchinella die. It is a mini die rather than a coverplate so I feel it’s uses are limited without lots of work. Others might have better ideas and my creative juices may not be flowing with regard to this product.
I decided rather than the white polka dots we see in the inspiration photo, I would change it up and create red polka dots on a blue background. Not only are they polka dots, they are raised (you might not be able to see height in the photo). I adhered a foam panel to the back of my red cardstock prior to die cutting. BTW… live and learn, be sure to run the die through with a dryer sheet first or you will have a mess! As Julie Ebersole would say, ask me how I know! I made a template of the die first, and on the blue panel, in white pen, marked the center of each dot. Then… I literally glued each foam-mounted dot on. Was it worth it? It looks pretty cool. I added a layered sentiment to finish.
