Oh, Alice CHAPTER 26: Sizin' up a Sketch...

CHAPTER 26: Sizin' up a Sketch...

"The Caterpillar was the first to speak.

`What size do you want to be?' it asked.

`Oh, I'm not particular as to size,' Alice hastily replied; `only one doesn't like changing so often, you know.'

`I DON'T know,' said the Caterpillar.

Alice said nothing: she had never been so much contradicted in her life before, and she felt that she was losing her temper.

`Are you content now?' said the Caterpillar.

`Well, I should like to be a LITTLE larger, sir, if you wouldn't mind,' said Alice: `three inches is such a wretched height to be.'

`It is a very good height indeed!' said the Caterpillar angrily, rearing itself upright as it spoke (it was exactly three inches high).

`But I'm not used to it!' pleaded poor Alice in a piteous tone. And she thought of herself, `I wish the creatures wouldn't be so easily offended!'

`You'll get used to it in time,' said the Caterpillar; and it put the hookah into its mouth and began smoking again..."

Hello! How is everyone here in Wonderland today?

We are sizing up a GREAT sketch by JEN and the main panel just HAPPENS to be THREE. INCHES. TALL. :) Now, of course you don't have to stick to this if your image won't fit, but we didn't want to anger Mr. Caterpillar by saying that Three inches wasn't a respectable height, so here's the sketch: 

I decided to make a gift card set since I was already making 3 X 3 cards.  I just love this Reminisce Through the Looking Glass designer paper and had the sticker sheet that matched.  Each card is embossed with a different Cuttlebug folder (clockworks, queen of hearts, keys, and mushrooms) and scuffed with Stampin Up Ballet Blue ink so make the embossing pop. 
To make the holder I  found a template of A-2 size cards and cut down the measurements to work for the 3 X 3 size.  The border punch is from EK Success (Card Suits).  Now to find or make some little envelopes.

Check out the samples by our AWESOMELY Twisted team with the links on my side bar or see them all at the Oh, Alice blog.
