What's Cooking?

My friend's son has just been given an apprenticeship as a chef and asked if I could make her a card to give to him.

I hand cut the tunic and used Woodware's Christmas Dinner clear stamps for the emblem on the front and also the knife, fork and spoon on the insert,the stamp set has a great selection of festive food too. I doctored some peel-offs for the greeting and used some flat backed gems for the buttons.
I'd like to thank the lovely Mina for the blog candy papers that she sent me as the DP included was just perfect for this card.


I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Allsorts 80,Monochrome,
Stamp Simply 167,Use black,
Hodge Podge Shop 4,Anything goes,
Sassy Studio 48,Monochrome,
I made a few other cards yesterday so at least I know I've got something to show you in the week.
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
