Apron card

I bought a baking image from LOTV months and months ago with a specific person in mind to use it for.  I think I got it just before it was retired as I don't think it's still available now.  A friend at work is passionate about baking and she makes the most amazing cakes, so I knew immediately it was the perfect image for her birthday card.  And amazingly I actually remembered that I'd bought it several months later when it was her birthday!

I made a tent-fold card into the shape of an apron by cutting out 'armholes' using an oval nestie in both top corners and adhering some ribbon into a loop at the top and ties at the sides before adding the backing paper.

I popped some rolled flower ribbon at the top and added a pocket created by the image which I stuck down with double-sided tape on three sides after stitching to lilac backing card, and inside I popped in a little tag with a stamped sentiment.

This project is to support the challenge at As You Like It Challenge where our theme is to showcase your favourite type of ribbon/twine/lace.   Although I love twine and lace, my favourite is definitely ribbon.  I usually reach for a satin ribbon, but opted for a soft lilac gingham for my baking themed apron card.



And here's the card with the little tag pulled out so you can see the sentiment which says 'We are all special - some of us just don't know it yet'.
