Kiss Me Anyway Card

I have made this card for the people on this earth whose ancestors have not had a reproductive run in with an Irish person. I can't use the card myself, so I gave it to my brother-in-law Billy. He thinks he might have some Irish blood somewhere. We actually try to pass ourselves off as identical twins, but so far we haven't been able to fool anyone. Here he is with his wife Diana, who is also a stitcher.

Because I cannot throw away cross stitch fabric, I like to use the scraps for other things. On this card I use Wichelt Jobelan 28 ct. Morning Dew Linen. If you don't have that laying around you can use a pale green card stock or fabric of any type.
