Day 2 - Apron Inspiration

So, here is the inspiration for my next card. Isn't that a cute one? Love the detail along the bottom of the skirt and couldn't wait to try that out on this card!

I used a strip of the Twilight paper from the Emporium Creative Basics Kit. I pleat-folded the strip into 1/2" and 1" increments. (A 12" strip will fold into 4" this way, so my card size is 4 x 5.5). I sewed the strip right down the middle to "adhere" it to the card. I randomed stamped the floral pattern using Twilight and Sweet Leaf. Finishing the card off, I stamped the sentiment from PTI's Heartfelt Basics - great sentiments for many occasions, and added some buttons and ribbon for interest.

Here are the specs:
Stamps: CTMH Rose Splendor (retired), PTI Heartfelt Basics
Cardstock: CTMH Twilight, White Daisy
Patterned Paper: CTMH Emporium Creative Basics
Inks: CTMH Twilight, Sweet Leaf
Accessories: CTMH Craft Buttons (Winter), Offray White Grograin Ribbon, Embroidery Floss
Tools: Marvy Oval and Scalloped oval punch


  1. WOW! I love the paper treatment across the bottom. The color combo is gorgeous. It looks so vintage and feminine.

  2. Wow, wow, wow! What can I say? This is absolutely gorgeous!
