Let's Cook

Howdy! and welcome!  I've been a little busy getting some cards made, and well, I wanted to share the last one I made.  I had a request for some cupcakes, and you know me, I have to make them look delicious, package them pretty, and send along a card!  {smile}
I played along with two Anything Goes challenges, so I could create something simple, pretty, and just what I needed.  {smile}

I picked up this 'baking' pattern paper from our local scrapbooking store several weeks ago, only because I loved the paper.  And I finally got a chance to cut it!
I am entering my card @ Word Art Wednesday, for their Anything Goes challenge.  If you haven't played along with this talented group of ladies, you are certainly missing out.

I am also entering my card @ Brown Sugar Challenge, for their Anything Goes challenge, as well.  This design team will inspire you!  Please stop by and have a look.

and here is my card:

my card was selected as a 'Top 3' @ Word Art Wednesday

Recipe:  The card is a typical A2 size card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I used my favorite kraft card stock as the base.  I love the color and feel of this heavy weight card stock.
I used pattern paper from Bo Bunny, Kiss the Cook collection.  I just love the colors, the nostalgic patterns, and the beautiful images.  It reminds me of a church picnic.  Everything homemade, and delicious!
I layered two different but coordinating pattern papers and machine stitched them together.   I think machine stitching adds some much character to the card.  {smile}
I wrapped some mint blue seam binding around the card front.  Layered a paper doily from Stampin' Up! on top of the ribbon.  I stamped an oven mitt in Mint Macaroon classic ink, by Stampin' Up! onto white linen card stock, by Paper Trey Ink.   I used  the Country Kitchen stamp set by FarmHouse Paper Co.  I fussy cut the mitt out with my scissors.  And adhered it to the card front with foam tape.  I just love how this linen card stock gives the oven mitt the look of fabric!
Tied a multi-loop bow with the seam binding, and tied on a yellow button, to highlight the yellow in the pattern paper.
For my sentiment I used the Label Love stamp set by Altenew.  I am so loving this stamp set!  I stamped the sentiment  in basic black classic ink, onto vanilla card stock and fussy cut.  I adhered the sentiment bar to the card front with foam tape.
Viola!  My card isn't loaded with a pound of blossom, or trim, but I still think it looks sweet!  I hope you get a chance to create something beautiful and play along with these challenges!
