We recently attended a wedding shower for a sweet couple. We purchased a gift card for them from Williams Sonoma and I wanted to make a card to go along with the cooking theme.
I used the discontinued Apron of Love stamp and die set from Stampin’ Up. It’s too bad this is no longer available – it is such a great set to use when giving gifts from your kitchen or inviting friends to a summer BBQ. I did a quick search on Ebay and there are a few sets available there if you are interested.
The embossing folder I used is also discontinued 😦 but this Swiss Hearts folder from Taylored Expressions would be cute. I also used a tiny dot folder like this one to emboss the scalloped circle and the apron pocket.
To make the card, I embossed a panel of black card stock with the hearts embossing folder and attached it to a white card. I die cut the apron, ties, and apron pocket from red card stock. I embossed the pocket with the tiny dots folder. I die cut a scalloped circle from white card stock and embossed it with the tiny dots folder. (This is a great set of scalloped circle dies if you are looking for some.) I also die cut the utensils from silver mirror card stock.
The scalloped circle is attached to the card over the heart embossed panel. I assembled the apron, attaching the utensils to the back of the pocket and used foam tape to attach the pocket to the apron. The apron is attached to the scalloped circle with foam tape. The “love” sentiment is stamped with red ink on white card stock, punched with an oval punch similar to this, and attached to the card. I’m not sure where that stamp is from – it was a random stamp in my collection. A little heart stamp would also be really cute!
I love creating cards to match the theme of a gift! I hope this sweet couple finds lots of love in their kitchen. 🙂
