Floral Apron Shaped Card

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. If you have been following me, you have read in my previous post how I went into a crafting slump last week. I am glad to finally break out of it! I was able to do more crafting this week than last week.

Today's project was inspired by Honey Bee's March's FB Challenge. I linked the challenge below, in case you are interested to join.

I got this Honey Cuts Apron A2 die as one of the crafty items I purchased from a crafter's fundraiser destash. I am not familiar with the die so I went to the Honey Bee website to see project samples using this die. I die cut four pieces of the apron on cream cardstock. 

The die set comes with the die to cut the neck piece. I cut four pieces of this on red cardstock. 

The die set also comes with a die that will cut a folding piece to make this into a card. I die cut this piece on a heavy weight vellum, and gave it a good score using the scored line created by the die.

I embellished the apron with die cut tulips. The layering dies I used for the tulips is from Honey Cuts Lovely Layers Tulip die. I used the tulip bud for this project, cutting the layers on different colors of cardstock.

I adhered the tulips buds to the apron.

The apron die cut comes with two slits to slide the neck piece through. I slid the red neck piece die cut to the flower embellished apron. The ends of this neck piece just needs to be slid through about 1 cm. If you push it through further, the curved portion of the neck piece die cut will curve upwards. I used a strong double adhesive tape to adhere the ends to the back of the apron. 

To make this into a card, I adhered the folding piece to the back of the flower embellished apron, avoiding the score on the vellum. I adhered the other apron die cut to the other half of the folding piece.

To have a finished look, I adhered another neck piece die cut to the back of the neck piece that is adhered to the front of the card. I repeated the process on the back apron die cut, making sure the neck pieces are all aligned. 

I trimmed a sliver off the side of the other two apron die cuts. I adhered this to the inside of the apron card.

I stamped a sentiment to the inside of the card using a sentiment stamp from the Honey Bee You Bake Me Happy stamp set which unfortunately has been retired. Despite this, I think a lot of sentiments that can work with this card.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
