In the mood for cooking?

I made this card for a friend in my monthly RAK group. She loves to cook so I knew this would be perfect for her. It also happens to fit the challenge on the A Muse Addicts site for last week, "Old Meets New". The mixing bowl, mixer and apron are from the new clear Baking Set and the sentiment is a older wood mounted stamp that is so versatile.

This card measures 4 x 8 inches. I just happened to have some red envelopes that were 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 so I made the card to fit in them. I used SU Real Red for the base and A Muse Brown Kitchen patterned paper on the layer. I cut the edge with the scallop blade of my Marvy paper cutter.

I just love the brown and red combination, it just feels warm and cozy to me. It's getting me in the mood to cook up a big meal next week!

I like the changes you made, it looks great! And looks like you got your old posts back.

I'm excited to have the family together next week. And just found out I won't have to work that day, yay!
