Christmas Card Club - Apron of Love for Christmas Baking Theme

Stampin Up! Apron of Love arrived this week just in time for Maureen's challenge for our jolly Christmas Card Club.  She asked us to use the theme of Christmas Baking and this set just leapt out for me.  I've also used the Stampin' Up! favourite Cookie Cutter Christmas set to include a peeping gingerbread man to compliment the sentiment which is from a set I've had for years.

My colour choice is cherry cobbler, garden green, crumb cake with touches of silver with a metallic foil doily, foil utensils and some silver metallic enamel shapes.  I used the stitched shape dies teamed with layering square dies to cut and mount the sentiment.

You'll see that some of the pieces of the lovely apron are very fiddly and so to make it easier to adhere them I first added some multipurpose adhesive sheet to the reverse of my designer paper so that once die cut they already had adhesive on the back and all I needed to do was peel off the backing paper to stick them onto my card.  It makes it so much easier than adding wet glue or fiddling with glue dots.  An assortment of adhesives makes life so much easier don't you think!

To bring the apron to life I added various glue dots or stampin dimensionals to give a bit of a 3D effect layering the utensils and the pockets.  I love the sweet oven gloves one is from the Apron of Love stamp set, the other I stamped with a stamp from Timeless Textures after I had die cut them both.

I love Christmas bakes and hope you do too, so please be sure to visit the other ladies and see their Christmas bake cards.

Happy Sunday and best wishes for a crafty week.

You certainly embraced the challenge theme with this fun card. HOw much more themed can it be with the apron, all the fancy cooking tools?! This is just perfect and I love your DP apron. The 'wooden' tools looked so very realistic, as did the metallic glimmer of the spatula. Then you even added a cute pocket to hold these baking tools, plus the apron mitts. Very clever, very well done & so very creative! TFS & Hugs
