Green & White are such a delight...

Thought I would pop in and share a clean and simple design. I hate to throw out anything! And my t-shirt drawer is definitive proof of this shortcoming... So when I found myself with a sliver of a doily die cut I had to put it to good use!

I stamped the image (from ODBD's Faith set) on the DP twice. The edge has been cut with a paper punch and then stitched (using a zigzag stitch) on the card base. This design is smaller than what I normally do. (4 1/4 x 5 1/4) A 1 inch wide band of embossed CS hides the doily remnant. I stitched that on as well using a simple straight stitch. The final touches include a twill bow and a scalloped Spellbinder die with the sentiment. (may be found on the Faith set also...) Easy as pie! That sounds good! Off to create or maybe enjoy a slice of pie???

Thanks for reading!
