The calico print used for these cards reminded me a lot of house dresses my grandmother used to wear. (Remember when dressing down for them was a cotton, knife-pleated skirt, shirt-waist dress? Oh, and always stockings, but sometimes rolled down to the ankle.) These prints are timeless and when I want something simple that feels good I turn to these, especially for heritage cards or layouts.
The cardstock is double-sided so the pretty peach was a natural choice for the ribbon and embellishments. The little butterfly on the second card was punched with what I call the "half image punch" so I could fold it open and reveal the butterfly in full calico dress.
I am happy to say that these cards were attractive to at least a couple of visitors to the Branson Craft Mall, because they have both been sold. Woo hoo!
