Lots of Dots

Good morning CANDi people! It’s Britt from Pink Paper Crowns here to share a card with you today!

When I start making a card or craft project I try to pick a uniting factor, for example, a paper line, a color scheme, a theme, or even a shape.  Giving myself parameters before I even begin my project helps me to decide what products to use and makes the whole experience more enjoyable.  I can focus on good design and the feeling I want for the project if I’m not bogged down with so many possibilities.

Today’s project theme: Dots ( I know, it’s a little obvious considering CANDi are dots. But, no one said I had to be original. : )

A theme or shape can be interpreted several different ways on one project and just by virtue of repetition (a good design word to remember) it will help bring everything together.


Cardstock: (tan) Creamy Cardstock by DCWV; (red) American Crafts | Patterned Paper (Nordic Holiday Collection 6x6) Basic Grey | Die: (‘Tis The Season) Sizzix for Basic Grey | Embossing Folder: (Bubbles) Sizzix | CANDi (Coffee Bean, Very Merry Silver) Craftwork Cards


1) Make card from cardstock. Emboss tan cardstock with embossing folder, adhere to card.

2) Die cut sentiment from patterned paper.

3) Trim strips from patterned paper, notch ends. Adhere to card with foam adhesive.

4) Adhere sentiment over notch-end strips.  Punch scalloped sections of patterned paper, adhere.

5) Use CANDi Fix to adhere coordinating Card CANDi to finish.
