Garden Apron Birthday Card | Honey Bee Stamps

 Happy Wednesday friends!  When Honey Bee released the awesome Apron A2 Card and the Apron: Garden Tools Add-on Honey Cuts, I couldn't wait to create with these!

I love all of the little gardening tools and the scalloped apron pocket that comes with the Apron Garden Tools Add-on!

First I created a white apron card base with the dies from the Apron A2 Card die set.  Next I die cut the pocket and two apron ties from gingham paper in the Sweet On You 6x6 paper pad.  Then I added the tie to the top of the apron and adhered the floral apron die cut to the card front.  The floral paper is from the Spring Fling 6x6 paper pad.  I adhered the second tie to the back of the card, making sure it lined up with the one on the card front.

Then I used the largest Scallop A2 Card Frames Honey Cut and die cut a few strips of the scallop edges.  I adhered them to the apron top and bottom with liquid glue.  To hide all of the pieces that were showing on the back of the card, I adhered another white apron die cut to cover it and give a clean look.

Next I stamped the sentiments on the inside in black ink.  I love all of the various sentiments found in the Inside: Birthday sentiments set!

Now it's time to add the adorable elements to the card front!  I die cut the gardening tools from some mat silver card stock.  Then I die cut them once more with coral and green card stock from my stash.  I trimmed off the handles and adhered them to the silver tools.  Next I adhered the apron pocket pieces together and glued it to the card front.  I only added glue around the curved edge so I could tuck the tools into the pocket.

I even created little paper flower buttons for the apron!  I die cut three flowers for each button and adhered the layers together.  Then I pulled out a needle and embroidery thread and added a French knot to each button.  

Next I used the Bitty Buzzwords stamp set and coordinating Honey Cuts and die cut "enjoy" three times from white card stock.  I adhered the layers together with glue and added them to the shadow.  I stamped "your day" with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide to coordinate with the rest of the card.

I had a few extra pieces and added those to the inside of the card for that special touch!

I think the handwritten plant tags add a personal touch!

I hope you've enjoyed my card and have found some inspiration today!  Thanks so very much for stopping by!
