I just LOVE this sweet image from Kraftin' Kimmie. Her name is Goldilocks. She's colored with Copics and popped up on a layer of foam tape.
For the background I wanted to create a quilt with paper. I thought it would go well with the image. I used the My Mind's Eye Blush 6 by 6 pad and cut 1 inch squares. I glued them all together and then stamped some stitching with SP & Company's Stitchery Doo set using Hero Arts Chalk Ink in Latte.
I did a little trick to make the kraft border even. My card is actually 4 and 1/4 by 5 and 1/4. That way I could work with simple 1 inch squares and still have a nice even border. No one would really notice unless they set it next to a 4 and 1/4 by 5 and 1/2 inch card, and even so - who cares. It can easily be put in a regular A2 envelope. Sometimes a simple solution is best. Just go with what works and don't over-complicate it :)
I can't wait to send this little sweetheart to someone who needs a hug!
Hope you are well dear visitor.
