While cleaning up/out my office, I came across this super cute DSP sheet, and all these ideas came to mind, but what package of DSP was it from – it was Stampin' Up!'s Frightful Sight!!!  Really?  This is not Halloween paper, is it?  Then I turned into a genius and flipped the DSP over, and there are spiders printed on the back, yep, it is Halloween paper.

But it's polka dots, so you know I love it!  I thought this would make a great color combination for masculine cards too, even with it being polka dots.  I then struggled a bit with what color ribbon to use, I tried black, but that made it look like a precursor to death birthday card – that doesn't work.  So I tried again with Old Olive, not so much, then I saw my 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon and I remembered that the polka dots are only printed on one side – TOUCHDOWN!

I grabbed an Old Olive button from my Brights Buttons and made my cute "knot" for the center of the card.  So here is the skinny on this DSP, there is this polka dot pattern and there is another polka dot pattern in that pack with a black background rather than white.  You can make a ton of cards that are not Halloween cards with these polka dot sheets. 

The Frightful Sight DSP was cut down to 4" x 5 1/4", so you can get six pieces for the front of you card from each sheet – so 12 of this print in a package – and get this, it is on sale for only $8.21!  It is too early for me to do the math, but I do know that it adds up to a great deal.  I will be making a stack of these cards today – not to brag (ok, to brag a little) I love this card!

I hope you enjoyed today's card!  If you want to grab Stampin' Up!'s Frightful Sight DSP before it retires so you can make some not-so-Halloweeny cards too, here is the link!
