Don't you just love it when you get an idea in your head and it almost turns out how you think it will? lol that doesn't usually happen for me, most cards just seem to change during construction.
This stocking (PSX) I decided was for a lady. the lace, the quilting, the heart patch all said do it pretty to me... so the idea here ahead of time was to make a card that looked like an well loved quilt. (now in real life some of my real life quilts none of them are in such pretty colors lol) but, this is fantasy land so... this card is 6 Inches square in real life. the PSX stocking is stamped with versafine ink on Georgia Pacific 110 cardstock, the peach textured mat is Bazzill, the Stampin Up sentiment is from one of the first sets i ever bought great greetings the date on the wood mount says 1992 on it) It's stamped on a peach scrap of holly pond hill pp from Paper Adventures, the mat is a scrap of the green crumpled background under the herb pots card from yesterday. edging was cut with pinking shears ( real ones from the quilt dept. work so much better then the fiskars version) Brown Gingham ribbon scrap from Really reasonable ribbon. Yep, probably do have a peach or green ribbon that would have "matched" perfectly but, something I'm noticing lately seems to be there is a "good enough" and this works "good enough" :) Lace is unknown, the green textured cardbase is Bazzill.
