For the Aspiring Pastry Chef

My cousin in Texas has decided to pursue her dreams of becoming a pastry chef and has moved to a different city to go to school AND the day I finished this card, she got an offer for an externship at a FABULOUS restaurant!!! I am so happy for her. I had been wanting to send her a card but, hadn't had the time to do so. I happened across the tag cut on the A Child's Year cartridge's cooking key and decided now was the time! I cut the cooking tag with the rolling pin and the shadow mount at 2". I felt like the shadow mount was huge in comparison so, I trimmed it down a little. The card is a solid brown base with a mount on the front from the DCWV Latte stack. I cut the shadow base using a cream cardstock and the top tag with the rolling pin cut out, from a green cardstock. I then used a Fiskar's border punch to scallop the front bottom edge. I cut 1/2" strips of the same green and attached a brown ribbon from Michael's to them and then attached one to the top and one to the bottom of the Latte paper. I mounted the tag and used pop dots to attach it to the card.

On the inside, I mounted a dark purple cardstock and then the rolling pin cutout from the tag and stamped the Dee-lish sentiment from Studio G. I can't wait to try some of her Dee-lish creations!!!!
