Copy the Catalog Challenge with Apron of Love

My team challenge was to copy a card in the catalog - but use a different stamp set and colors. 

My inspiration was the coffee set on page 31 - my favorite from the annual catalog.  I love the square 4x4 gift card holder to the left of the picture.  I love the coffee bean stamp and the matching ribbon.

So here's my Apron of Love with a Dunkin Donuts gift card. The Apron of Love set has the heart and I thought it made a fun pattern and I'm in "Valentine mode"!

What do you think?

My goal was also to make a card that a beginner could make as I'll be crafting at Dunkin Donuts.  I thought this was pretty easy.  

You stamp hearts (and a greeting inside) then make a holder (it's 3 1/4 x 4, scored 1/2 on each of the the short side and 3/4 on 1 end of the long side), attach to card, stamp the pocket, cut out the apron, strings, pocket.  I got the logo online.

The ribbon is the lovely Berry Burst silver edge and I tied it with the twine.  

Do you think it will be easy to make?  I thought so.

I'd be interested to hear what you think! Is it cute? Easy for a beginner?  

Happy stamping (and happy copying the catalog!) MaryKate
