My sweet friend, Colby, is having a Pampered Chef party later this month and asked if I would make her some "cooking" themed invitations to send out. Um, YEAH! She originally asked for a chef's hat, but I only had one image in all of my cartridges and it wouldn't have worked well. Soooooo, plan B was developed...an apron!
This apron is from the Country Life cartridge (LOVE!!!)...I cut the shadow at 5" in red cardstock. I cut the normal image at 5" in patterned paper and also in cream carstock (to mat on the reverse side with party details...not shown). To give the invites some dimension, I added plaid ribbon to the top of the apron and attached it with brads. I also added a paper flower and button, along with pockets that I hand drew stitching on to give them detail. To finish, I printed "You're Invited" onto cream cardstock, trimmed, and matted with blue cardstock, attaching it beneath the flower embellishment. These fit perfectly in a standard thank you-sized ennvelope.
Hope you like them, and thanks for looking! Have a creative day!!! :)
