Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

This is the second Apron shaped card that I've made and I really do love it.  The arm holes are cut out with oval nesties and the ribbon ties are stuck onto the base before adding the designer papers.  The image is stuck onto the base card on three sides only with double sided tape, so that the top is open, like an apron pocket, for the tag (which contains the sentiment) to be inserted.

Although I'm really trying to give the CAS style some effort, I'm definitely naturally more of a fussy kind of crafter. I particularly love this kind of design which is themed throughout, from the apron card-shape, the lemon backing papers and of course the cookery image. With some rose rolled organza ribbon, gorgeous satin ribbon, pearls and a shaped tag, it's not as fussy as some of my designs, but certainly doesn't qualify as CAS!

This project is in support of our new CAS or Fussy challenge at As You Like It.  I hope you can join us this fortnight.

So pretty hun - loving the perfect shape to accompany that super sweet image, which is beautifully coloured, and the lemon is wonderfully fresh and vibrant. Would be a super card to give with a homemade lemon drizzle cake! Brilliant, as always. Hungry hugs xx
