An Apron Greeting Card

Over the Christmas holidays, we celebrated my niece's 14th birthday. Miriam is such a beautiful, fun, unique girl. She has been such a blessing to our family.

Here is a most recent photo of Miriam - such a gorgeous girl!

One thing Miriam loves to do is cook and bake. So I thought it would be fitting to make an apron card for her! I found a simple tutorial on Paper Crafter's Library and made my own version using Calypso Coral and So Saffron as the main colours. Here's how it turned out:

The new ruffle stretch trim from Stampin Up added the perfect touch to the edges of the pockets.
I stuck a tag in the front pocket with a cupcake and a birthday sentiment on it. For the inside pocket, I created a recipe card using my "From the Kitchen Of" stamp set and wrote a cookie recipe on it for Miriam to try.
I had a lot of fun making this one and hope to make more like it!
Have a great Monday!
