Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge – Red, White & Blue

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Red, White & Blue

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.

Supplies: Neat & Tangled Punchinella, Simon Says Stamp Sending, Papertrey Ink Wet Paint III, Versafine, Hero Arts embossing powder, Uniball white pen
