BBQ Apron: JUGS #39

Time for a new Just Us Girls template challenge!

Our hostess this week, Maria, is challenging all of us to make an apron card. Don't know how to make an apron card?... No problem! Maria has posted a link to a tutorial, located HERE.

These little cards are so cute and perfect for summer BBQ party invitations or birthday cards for those BBQing folks in your life.



Here's a close up view...


I actually stamped a white argyle pattern on the red felt to represent a dish towel, but the pigment ink didn't like the felt a whole lot :(  The little BBQ tools were cut using my Cricut (I've been going crazy on that thing!) from silver card stock. Another freebie .svg file for all you Sure Cuts A Lot users -- HERE. This site is a tremendous source of .svg files. The "You're invited" part slips out of the pocket but I forgot to get a picture of that. Perhaps I'll add one this weekend...

If you already haven't, see the JUGS site for all the challenge deets. Don't forget to swing by the blogs of the other JUGS DT gals and show them a little love :) Their links are posted on the side bar of my blog. Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls - we love seeing your creations and always appreciate your support! Thanks to all that participated in Alicia's color challenge last week- talk about stunning creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

TTFN,

This is simply AMAZING! Makes me want to grill RIGHT NOW - even though it's 6:45 am!!!

What a clever idea adding the utensils in the pocket! I thought they were chipboard. I have some utensils from Maya Road that were a gift that I could have used! Thanks for the reminder! This is so cute! Love the stitching and the addition of that felt dish towel! Great job with the challenge!
