Apron Abby card with French sentiment
This is another card using Apron Abby from Whimsie Doodles' February release and my last post as the WD February guest designer. It has been such fun creating with the new release this month. I have quite a few Whimsie Doodle stamps in my digital stash; they're some of my favorites, so cute and humorous.
I used Apron Abby on my last altered box project (here) as a brunette, this time I thought she'd make a cute blonde. I paper pieced her headband, dress, apron and shoes for a 3D effect. My sentiment is done with English 157BT font. 'Gros bisous pour toi' is the French equivalent of 'hugs and kisses'. This is another reason I like digital stamping, I can add my sentiment in French or English.
