More Royal Blog Tour Details! Cookie Swap Invitation

This adorable apron Cookie Swap invitation is one of my favorite projects for the stamp set Sweet Season that I featured for the Royal Blog Tour. (Oh... who am I kidding ... I loved every one of my creations for the tour!!) A used a template for the apron card that I printed out from Mirkwood Designs. The invitation fits into a large Whisper White envelope. I enlarged the provided template 135% to get the size that I was looking for. I needed it small enough to fit into an envelope, but large enough to stick the Cookie Swap details in the front pocket, with print large enough that everyone could read it and know the details!

I punched apron pockets out of another pattern of the Jolly Holiday DSP using the large tag punch that I matted underneath the stamped Vanilla small tags.

The pockets were stamped with the adorable gingerbread man from the Got Treats stamp set. (I used him again on my invitation card details!) The trim is the Chantilly crochet lace trim -- I attached a layer of Sticky Strip, then randomly bunched and attached the trim to the Sticky Strip.

The top of my apron has the Gingerbread sentiment again -- perfect for the finishing touch! I punched it out using the new Decorative Label Punch. Again, my Cherry Cobbler seam binding (don't you love that sheen?!) made up the apron strings. I attached a magnet to the back of the invitation so nobody will forget the event! Of course, I also had to stamp by Stampin' Up! details so maybe someone will get to know me and what I do better!

The last photo below shows my invitation in the "pocket":
