Good Day Crafty Friends,

I made a special card for my wonderful Hubby, Daniel. He is the more proficient chef/cook/baker in our household - emphasis on baker! He makes the most wonderful Chocolate Cake, Pavlova and Slices. So for his Valentines Day card I decided he needed a "Kitchen of Love" - really I just wanted to use my Apron of Love Bundle.......again. I just love this bundle.

As you can see the card has a simple 'pop up' base, with the kitchen counter being the main pop up component.  I added an extra layer to the pop up mechanism, behind the acetate window in the oven. Silver Foil card has been placed approx. 1cm behind the oven front - attached to the kitchen counter and card base "floor". To this I added 3 heat embossed cup cakes.

The oven has been made using the Heart and Home Framelits - cut down with the bottom ledge reattached. Acetate has been placed behind the die cut before attaching to the kitchen counter which had an opening made with a craft knife.

The cooktop has been created using Silver Foil card with various dies and punches - Owl Builder, Home Sweet Home, Stitched Shapes.

All sentiments have been white heat embossed as well as the cupcakes, oven glove and apron pocket with flowers (tucked under the banner with "made with love" sentiment.)
The card front is also a little special. Using the large letter Framelits to spell out LOVE, replacing the O with a die cut heart.  To make it that little bit extra special I made the heart with a small shaker element. Then in a banner, the sentiment from Petal Palette was stamped, fussy cut and placed over the heart.

The Design Team have created some stunning cards to inspire you to get crafty with a Romance theme. We would love for you to join us, you can play along by adding your creation to the JAI gallery here. I can’t wait to see all the amazing cards.

Until next time, stay awesome
