I think my mom and my grandma would have loved these Apron of Love cards! I can vividly picture both of them opening the tall cabinet door in the kitchen (fondly called the "broom closet") and pulling out their aprons, putting them on and cooking a meal or baking cookies or a cake. (oh ya, and then there was that time the pressure cooker blew up... ) Anyway, they ALWAYS wore their aprons!! So my "Apron of Love" bundle cards today pay tribute to those days as I fondly watched them cooking together wearing their vintage fabric aprons.
I decided to create a "his and hers" version of my Apron of Love card... hers for baking in the kitchen, and his for BBQ'ing on the deck. The Apron of Love bundle features darling utensil dies so that you can create baking utensils and BBQ'ing utensils quickly and easily! I used different colors of cardstock, plus silver foil paper and wood textures paper stack paper to get a variety of utensils for my cards! I also stamped the bowl from the Fruit Basket set to add to my "baking" theme!
ABOVE: my "hers" baking version includes fun colors and patterns from the Bubbles & Fizz Sale-a-Bration paper pack (a free gift choice with $50 purchase in my online store through 3/31/18). The "wood" rolling pin is just the perfect finishing touch! I used a scrap from my Wood Textures paper stack to die cut that!
After stamping the bowl from the Fruit Basket set in Island Indigo ink, I just used my Blender Pen to slightly blend the ink and create shading on the sides, to help make the basket look round.
BELOW: the "his" version of the Apron of Love card is for the BBQ chef in my life! Even though my dad and my hubby don't wear an apron when they BBQ, it's still pretty cute! Again, I used patterns from the Bubbles & Fizz Sale-a-Bration paper, and also stamped bubble images from the Bubble Over stamp set on both cards.
The card base for both cards is a Thick Whisper White card, 4-1/4" x 11", folded in 1/2.
