When I first saw the new stitched stocking set, my initial thought was of socks on the washing line, so that's what I've done:-
To get the pair of socks I stamped them on white tissue paper. I glued one sock to a piece of white cardstock & then, when it was dry, punched it out. With the other sock, I punched the tissue with a piece of white cardstock at the same time, so the tissue didn't get caught in the punch. Then I flipped it over so it faced in the opposite direction to the first sock & then glued it to the white cardstock sock.
The socks have been popped up on dimensionals & "pegged" to the baker's twine line with heart "pegs" from the owl punch.
I wish I had a sentiment that said something like "a perfect pair", but sadly I don't, so I inked up portions of the Short & Sweet sentiments & made my own equation.
Hope my wonderful hubby likes it - our anniversary is coming up soon.

BTW, there were no paper flowers in sight in this post, but I just had to share this one:-
This was made by my DS (a 20yo engineering student) who usually gives me a hard time over my papercrafting, with comments such as "are you doing paper again Mum?"
He pestered me to help him make a card for his girlfriend's birthday. He wanted a flower, so I explained to him how to make a slider card & he made this (all by himself). He was pretty chuffed with how it turned out & I was pretty chuffed that he wanted to make it. Young love! Happy Birthday Cassy! :)
