For Sweet Caroline!


My son asked if I could make a card for him to give his girlfriend for her birthday and as she's a chef, I thought I'd use a couple of kitchen accessories that have been in my NBUS stash for some years as well as a fairly new Poppy Stamps Whittle Pie die - I've fallen somewhat in love with the Poppy Stamps Whittle die range.  

I cut the spatula from red and spotty card, did a little surgery on the spotty one and overlaid it on the red, adding some thin strips of black to mask the joins.  These are possibly the oldest NBUS items I have in my stash.  According to my records I bought them in 2007.  They're very old Sizzix Original Dies - Apron and Mitt (I only used the mitt) and Cookies Baking Sheet and Spatula (I only used the spatula).

The pie base was cut from silver mirror card and I cut the top layer of the pie from red and craft so it looks like the filling is just oozing out of the pie!   I decided on a simple "sweet" sentiment - well her name is Caroline! 

 I made up another 2 pies - one for the envelope and one for the insert - and took a chunk out of the pie on the insert with a scalloped punch!  

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges
