Apron of Love for Father's Day

Hey!  I'm so glad you are visiting my blog today.  I want to share a card I've made for my husband for Father's Day.  I used the Apron of Love stamp set along with the Apron Builder Framelits.  I think he'll like it.  I'm very fortunate to have such a great husband.  He is a wonderful father and now grandfather.  I know I've mentioned that we have a new granddaughter.  Well, my husband John has not been able to decide what he wants to be called.  He just wanted to wait and let her decide.  But you know we have to call him something.  He has changed his mind several times.  We have now decided on Grammie and Gramps.  We'll see.  Anyway, here is the card.

As many of you, I spend a little time using Pinterest to look up inspiration for cards to make.  I think it was Mary Fish that had a card made up of the little squares from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I like the look of it and decided to use this technique with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.   Here are all the details.

The card base is Blueberry Bushel.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Whisper White and is cut at 3 3/4 x 5.  I picked different sheets from the Wood Textures for the squares.  I wanted it to have a patchwork look.  To place these, I started in the middle of the top.  I also used my grid paper to help me.  I placed the middle of the card on the center line of the grid paper.  I eyeballed the middle of the square and placed it at the grid line.  I hope that makes sense.

At the top of the white and wood layer, I ran a length of the Linen Thread.  The saying is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set stamped in Blueberry Bushel.  Use the Classic Label Punch to punch that out.  I did tie a little knot around the twine.

The apron is cut from the 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.  I am in love with these packs of paper.  I know I'll be buying a lot of it!  Cut out the apron, ties, neck string, and pocket.  Use the Apron Builder Framelits.  Glue all to the front of the card.

The cooking utensils are also part of the Apron Builder Framelits.  Cut them from the Silver Foil Sheets.  Glue so that they are sticking out of the Apron pocket.

The saying inside the card is from the Apron of Love stamp set.  I added a 1/2 inch strip of Wood Textures, left from some other project, and a tiny strip of the Blueberry stripe.  Add a few more of the utensils.
