Pampered Chef "Apron" Invitation

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 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!!!  :)

Yeah, when I opened this thing I was IMPRESSED! I knew immediately who had to have made them... and then I was a little bit jealous of your creativity and skills! Love you both! :-)

I absolutely adore Country Life -- I've used this apron for name tags at an Apron Lecture and the sewing machine for many LOs.
The banners are great, too!
