King of the grill......

My hubby has mastered the grill...that is for sure. So for Father's Day I wanted a card perfect for him. I was checking out Dena's blog...so love her creations, when I came across a great idea she did for her hubby. She made an apron card. How cool is that. Here is where you can find the pattern. Stamptacular Sunday has a great challenge this week: A tribute to all Father's".
Crafty Card Makers has a challenge as well this week: Cards for Men!


I used this cute little Hanglar image to place on top of the pocket which I made using a piece of white cardstock that I scored diagonal lines using my paper cutter. Inside the little pocket is a tag that says....King of the grill! I also bought this cute flipper to attach to the front at Stamping Bella.

The apron opens up just like a card so the kids can write whatever they like inside!

I am hoping the sun makes an appearance today since it rained all day yesterday. I hope you are having a great day! Thank-you so much for taking time out of your day to come and visit!

  13. This is STUNNING! Fabulous shaped card with a brilliant little pocket and adorable hAnglar. Me too, me too, me too (you'll have to read my last post to understand). The gingham is perfect. My diet has crashed and burned and so I don't even mind that the little guy is a chef or that "Dad" is King of the Grill! Hugs to you!
