Throwback Thursday: Big Chef Birthday

Today's post is a celebration of one of my favorite Stampin' Up! sets - one that retired many years ago. This set was introduced the year I became a demonstrator and I immediately fell in love with it. Not only is it great for birthdays, but with so many things to pile on top of the plate, it really can be used for just about any occasion. It can even be used to make twisted cards, like this one I stamped once for Halloween. It's also a great set for paper piecing, which is the technique I used on this card. The chef's hat and coat are paper pieced with certainly celery patterned paper. I will be entering this card in the QKR Stampede Challenge #249 Paper piecing or Anything Goes

There is nothing particularly complicated about this card, but the chef image is so awesome there really isn't much else that needs to be done. He captures attention all on his own.

For this particular card I also stamped and paper pieced a birthday cupcake from the Birthday Best set on the front of the envelope.

A super cute card. You did a great job paper piecing and I like that you decorated the envie, too. Thanks, Diane, for joining us for the QKR Stampede challenge.
