Use Your Stash Challenge: Polka Dots

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only papercrafter out there with an obsession with polka dot and stripe patterns.

If you were to look into my paper scrap bin in my craft room, you’d see a ton of these pattern types. And since I make my mom a set of handmade cards every Christmas, I decided to use up some of these scraps for her gift set.

And a really old cartoonish Jolee’s Boutique set to complete some simple cards.

A little while later, 12 handmade cards were complete for my mom’s gift!
