Apron Shaped Christmas card

Saw something similar on one of my trawls through the net and thought it was a great idea so this is my version. I cut out the apron shape freehand and then used these fab Echo Park papers to cover leaving a gap along the middle to slot in the recipe card. I then cut a white strip which I covered with the lace and ribbon and added that to the front making sure I didn't cover the slit. I added some ribbon and a button with some twine. The sentiment was a freebie and I added the Christmas recipe wording to the middle and layered it onto some nestie shapes. I also inked around most of the edges with distress inks.  Punch two holes for the neck ribbon and knot each end of the ribbon once you have pushed it through the holes. Print out a recipe  and back it onto some coloured paper and there you are Your Christmas Apron.
