Add a fun foiled (so shiny!) itsy bitsy polka dot background to your landscape craft projects! These plates can be used with most hot foil machines and leave a shiny impression but no cut lines on your cards.

Design Team Inspiration

The design team has made the most amazing samples! We also have a video at the end showcasing some fun ways of using these fresh new sets! Remember to click on the person’s name to see all of the details and then leave these wonderful DT girls some comment love!

Elena‘s Treat Cart design is so cute! She cut the Quilted Star Backdrop from ombré Rainbow Ever After paper before layering it over white cardstock. Then she used a Stitched Rectangle Frame to complete the background. I love that she featured the cute Whoosh Kites mice in this happy scene!

Yainea also featured the happy mice of Whoosh Kites on a creative card! The shiny dots of the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Background Hot Foil Plate look so special on this collage style card.

Yainea gold embossed the Give It a Whirl Messages: Friends greeting to coordinate with the gold polka dots! And I love how she used Turquoise Hemp Twine as the kite string, winding it around behind the sentiment circle! So clever!

It’s graduation season and Elise has a great design to celebrate those milestones! She layered a Blue Jay Quilted Star Backdrop over bright sunflower cardstock, school colors yay! Then she added the year with Louie’s 123s and a shine silver Scripty Congrats! A few bright stars finish this design!

Mindy featured a hot foiled polka dot background with a gold embossed Give It a Whirl Messages: Friends sentiment! All the shiny gold details make this simple design so special!

Marine‘s Whoosh Kites card is so summery and fun! With glittery silver stars peeking through the Quilted Star Backdrop its so perfect for sending July 4th greetings!

Megan used the hot foiled polka dots to add charming detail to her sweet Treat Cart design! I love her clever little scene arranged on a Stitched Circle and the way she framed it with the flag banners and a Bannertastic sentiment banner!

Baby cards don’t get much cuter than this adorable one by Audrey! I love how she paired the Quilted Star Backdrop with a Stitched Star Frame! The sweet little baby from Elephant Parade Add-On is so perfect to welcome a new little “star”!

Latisha‘s beautiful ink blending is so colorful and eye catching on the Quilted Star Backdrop! Then she continued the lovely colors with Giant Outlined Love Ya and the offset layered Scripty Love!

I love the look of hot foil on patterned paper! Grace added the shiny polka dots to a panel of Rainbow Ever After paper then she framed it with a Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame.

It’s the perfect backdrop for her beautiful garden combining Build-A-Drink Mason Jar Add-On with the coordinating Lantern and Lovely Lily of the Valley! She also included Scripty Hello and ladybugs from A Bug Deal and Hey Lady!
