Chef Tilda with a Gift Card!

Hi! I was inspired to make this card yesterday by the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast-cookiebaker. She had a card with a chef tucked in the pocket of the apron and it made me think of this Tilda! I had made the flower and the leaves some time ago and they were just waiting for a project! The vintage paper from Jillibean Soup seemed perfect with them to me! I don't have the colors I used to color Tilda because I must admit she has been colored up for some time too! This project came together quickly! I did some real stitching since because after all it is an apron.


It has been really hot here in Western New York for over a week (lovin' it!) so it is difficult to think of cooking! I love that there is a little pocket on the back of the apron which holds a gift card (the long way). Wouldn't a red Applebee's card in this make it the perfect gift! I think so!

If you've been inspired-here is the link for the Apron template!

Barbeque Apron Card
I played around with it by cutting the whole apron from DP, but then wanted it to be more stiff so I cut the top part of the apron from card stock then folded the pocket behind. If you have any questions, just let me know!

Hope you had a safe and happy Fourth and wishing you a great day today!

What an awesome idea! I love it and your coloring was perfect for just such a card! I could see it also hanging from a canning jar gift! Perfect!
I also read your profile...and loved your quilt background on your blog. Do you quilt, too?
Ever hear of Rushford, NY? Or even Rushford Lake? Couldn't believe I found someone from my "neck of my childhood woods"! Would love more contact. Debi
