Eggs-traordinary Kindess

This is my post on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today!

Hello, Diane with you today using one our new stamp sets
released this month 'Eggs-traordinary Kindess'.
I decided to use one of previous released stamps
and using the digital version so I could print it card size.

I first printed the image the size I wanted
(easy using Micro-Soft word)
on card stock and printed it a second time on just plain copy paper.
I fussy cut both images out, leaving the ties off both.

I used the copy paper image as a pattern and traced it onto a
yellow gingham designer paper, then fussy cut it out.
I did this as I didn't want to use the pocket image on this particular card.

I inked the edges of the apron with  TH distress ink Mustard Seed.
The egg image was stamped  with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink,
then die cut using a Tutti designs Stitched Oval die.

I colored the image with Copics, then added it to the apron front.
I also added a small blue pocket and the sentiment that had been embossed
with Daffodil embossing powder.

To the bottom of the apron, I die cut a Flower Border edge (Precious Maieke),
coated it with Brushable Glue, then adding Lemonade glitter.
I added glue, more glitter about 3 times until I satisfied with the look,
This a semi transparent glitter and so pretty!
The edge was then attached to the apron bottom with

I think my apron turned out super cute and will make a great
card to send to a friend!
Thank you for visiting with me today!
