Here is the full card that accompanied the quilt for my granddaughter. I used a Stampin' Up! note card as my base. I had a scrap of Pink Pirouette that was leftover from die-cutting an Apothecary Framelits shape some time ago. It fit perfectly on the front of the card.
Next, I used the Stocking Punch (retired) and punched out two pink "booties" by cutting off the tops of the stockings. I covered each bootie with Gingham Garden Washi Tape. I used the foot and heel pieces in Pink Pirouette to cover those areas. Across the top of each bootie, I used some Pom Pom trim that I got at the fabric store. A flower from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and a Basic Pearl accents each bootie.
Matching Washi Tape was put around a baby bottle that was in my wrapping paper drawer. I popped each of those elements into the frame using Stampin' Dimensionals. More Washi Tape decorates blooms outside the frame.
My sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners and stamped in Rose Red ink onto Pink Pirouette card stock. I cut it out using the Bitty Banners Framelits. This is a sweet card for a sweet baby. Here is a photo of me and the baby:
I found an unfinished quilt top about 25 years ago at an antiques store. My daughter was about 4 years old at the time. I took apart the pieces (the squares were stitched very beautifully, however they were not "square") and stashed them in a basket. I remembered about three weeks ago that I had those squares and I had not yet decided what type of quilt to make for my granddaughter. I went to Wal Mart and got some pink fabric (two different patterns) to use as frames and a backing and a very thin layer of batting for the middle. In one afternoon, I put the quilt together.
I am thankful for "Bella", who in 1934, spent a lot of time and talent stitching each of these squares! She made my job so easy.
I love the old fashioned vignettes of this little girl's chores. Especially dear is the one where she is rolling out pie dough. You see, my daughter is a Pastry Chef by profession! I'm sure that my daughter and granddaughter will have plenty of time in the kitchen baking just like "Bella" of the quilt! I hope you enjoyed looking today and I'd love to read your comments!
