Thanks For Dinner!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!!
Here is a card I created using sweet Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch from this past Sunday, SSSC96!

For my card today, I used the darling What's Cookin'? set from Taylored Expressions! Being we are in the holiday season and lots of people are entertaining and attending gatherings, I thought a "Thanks for Dinner" card might come in handy!

I started by stamping the mixer in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored the "metal" parts and the bowl with Copic Markers. I paper pieced the rest of the mixer with the same DELISH papers I used on the rest of my card, Modern Homemaker from October Afternoon.

I used the brand new Large Scallop Border Die to create the border of patterned paper on the bottom and I embossed the aqua panel using the awesome new Scallops and Circles Impression Plate.

I cut out and embossed the focal panel using Circle Nestabilities and layered it over red cardstock cut from Scallop Circle Nestabilities. The sentiment, "Thanks for Dinner", also from What's Cookin'?, was cut out and embossed using the medium die from the Tags Trio by Spellbinders. I also added a die cut oven mitt from the same yellow polka dot paper that was cut using the Kitchen Accessories Die.

I finished this one off with a bow created with The Bow Easy, some brads on the top left corner, and of course, stitching all around that I did on my sewing machine!

Here are the Taylored Dies and Impression Plate I've used on my card today:
