Apron Shaped Card

Hi everyone!! I am back to my blog after a lonnnnnnnnnnnng break. First I went to Pune to meet my parents and then to Dubai for a much deserved annual vacation. Also work has been keeping me busy so I have not been able to craft regularly. I have been seeing lovely posts from my fellow crafters and admiring them. Hopefully I get on track soon :)

Here is a card that I made for my mom's birthday. I thought of making something simple yet meaningful. Since she is the best cook I know, I thought of making an apron shaped card for her.

This is my first try at an apron shaped card. I did have to experiment a bit :)
The card base is kraft colored card stock. I used the little border stamp from MME's 'Follow Your Heart Be Amazing Clear Acrylic Stamp' which I had pruchased from Crafters Corner, to outline the apron. The buttons were white in color and I did not have matching red buttons, so I colored them using my nail polish.

For the inside of the card, I printed this doll from the internet and colored it using distress inks.

Thanks for stopping by. Wishing you all a Happy New Year. I know I am late, but nevertheless!
