Or maybe a secret desire to be one of the von Trapp children in their matching drapery play clothes. (This was somewhat actualized on a family trip to Washington, DC, in the early 60s for which my mother made each of us girls a dress of blue and red polka dots — get it? — and one for herself as well. My father was spared.)
Anyway, ever since I saw the flocked paper in Stampin’ Up!’s Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper, I’ve been wanting to create an Alpine card. You may wonder why I used a Real Red and Whisper White paper with Ruby Red and Very Vanilla. You’ll learn the simple secret to this in December.
So here’s to brown paper packages …
