what a pair!

Two cards, same stamp and layout, different accessories & paper. Every time I pick up this sock stamp I hear in my head Phoebe Buffay singing the tune 'Smelly Cat' from the TV show Friends...I have no idea why the coorelation of that song and this stamp exists, but it does...I actually have to put the stamp back on its shelf for the song to go away - lol... I needed a card for my sister-in-law, whose home we invaded, I mean stayed with, during the recent holidays. The line, 'guests, like fish, start to stink' went through my head while thinking up a clever card to make for her. I saw this stamp, heard the song, and the card came next... :) I composed the card front verse and the interior sentiment in Microsoft Word. The template can be found here - the beauty of this template is one can print it onto cardstock, cut in half (two pieces - 8-1/2" x 5-1/2") and use the bottom portion as is for a card base! Interior sentiment is already in place for an A2 size card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2"), portrait layout. Cut the sentiment at the top out for the card front and use in the desired location. If there are leftovers, I always try to use a small piece of patterned paper inside the card to tie in the inside with the outside. Image was stamped then colored, pierced at the corners to mimic the diagonal pattern in the stamp image. Sock image was matted then mounted with dimensionals. Thank you for stopping by! card on left: Lockhart Warm Socks, 'sole mates' sentiment - A Muse; Palette pad in Noir Black; Copic markers; 7gypsies Karachi paper, corner nipper & olive cardstock (SU); piercer, awesome pad; piercing template - SU; dimensionals. card on right: Lockhart Warm Socks; Chatterbox paper, white Papertrey cardstock; Palette pad in Noir Black; Copic markers; olive ribbon; fish skeleton; brown linen thread; piercer, awesome pad; piercing template - SU; dimensionals.

Love your sentiments for these socks, Cindy -- too funny! And look at you, throwing around that "y'all" lingo like you're from the south or somethin'!! :D Cool idea to print them out that way -- I'll have to try it.

Gift cards is what I've missed for the last years, because there were so much choices how to great someone, text, call, social media, emails, but the old ways like greeting card is what I felt very sweet and memorable, where I can put them all in a box as souvenirs.
