Dottie goes GEOMETRIC!

Hi everyone, I hope your Sunday is treating you all well. I cannot believe how quickly time has passed and that it's my turn to challenge you over on Dotties World again! So here it is!



When I first told my son that I was on the Dottie Design Team, he asked loads of questions about what I needed to do. You can now blame Jack for this week's challenge as this was all his idea...but I have stretched it a little.

Dottie goes Geometric!


Jack suggested that I made a card using triangles but I am going to open up the possibilites and ask you to make creations with bold geometric shapes. This could simply be part of some patterned papers or a fancy shaped card...the choice is yours BUT I want to see some geometric shapes as a main part of your work....no cheating and telling me the brad is a circle!


The design team have worked wonders so go over to their individual blogs to take a closer look and get more details of their stunning creations.



I had ideas of exploding boxes a weird shaped cards but with everything that has been going on this week - once again - I have hardly had time to do ANY crafting so I really had to stick to some basics.


I used the Angel Dottie and circular sentiment from the Bumper Christmas Collection to create this card. My shapes are; triangles for the trees, rectangles for the tree stums, circles for the brad and sentiment, square for the card itself...ermmm I suppose a star is a geomentric shape too?

Pop over to Dotties World and join in the fun- I would love to see what you come up with!

It's such a beautiful card Adele, simply stunning! Did you use embossed foil for the trees? I love them!! Like Jac I love everything about this card, it's adorable!

Adele said...

The trees are simply made of green card that I hand cut and embossed with my CB folders. Then I attacked them with some metallic rub ons.

This is soooo cute, Adele. Dotie reminds me of some of the "angels" from school nativity plays when I was teaching in Primary school!
