We are well into December now, and I'm still making Christmas Cards! Today I'm sharing my card using Honey Bee Stamps Apron A2 Card die set. I've made a sweet Christmas apron shaped card to go with some sweet treats that I baked. This set is a previously released set that works beautifully with some new patterned paper and the sentiment I used on the inside of the card!
I began by die cutting the bigger A2 Apron Card die from some red card stock and from 80# Neenah. I used the smaller apron die to cut red gingham paper from the Gingham Galore: Holiday paper pad and adhered it to the red die cut apron. I didn't use the apron pocket in the set, but chose the apron pocket from the Apron Garden Tools Add-on set. I thought the shape and the scalloped edge were perfect for my Christmas apron! The patterned paper for the top layer of the pocket is from the Specialty Holiday Card Pack that's free with a qualifying purchase, while supplies last.
Next I used a couple of the sentiments from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays and stamped them on the other white die cut apron with Intense Black ink and red ink from my stash. Then I added strips of leftover gingham and red card stock near the bottom with Bee Creative glue.
So....you did you notice that the hinge I die cut (it's a die in the Apron: A2 die set) and adhered covered up part of my strips near the bottom. Yep, I didn't notice that "oops" until I photographed the card! Well, it is handmade, not Hallmark, right? Haha!
Moving on, I then stamped the elements for the card front. The sentiment and the baking tools are from the Baked With Love stamp set. After stamping with Intense Black ink, I colored them with my Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I wanted some greenery to tuck in the apron pocket and found these pieces that were leftover from a previous project using the Country Christmas Wreath. Do you save the extra bits in the hope to use it another time? I always do!! The little gingerbread cookie is also from this set and another leftover.
I arranged the elements in the apron pocket and adhered them with Bee Creative glue. I popped the sentiment up with foam squares. I used a #10 white gel pen to add the stitches on the apron and dots on the scalloped edge of the pocket.
There are so many of Honey Bee's sets that were previously released and are my favorites! I love being able to pull some out to use with the new products! Thank you for stopping by today! I hope the rest of your week is fabulous, and crafty!!
