Welcome to Grandma’s kitchen where she’s always happy to make you a batch of goodness while sharing stores. ;D I made this card using Baking with Nana from Belles ‘n Whistles and the Kitchen Isle and Kitchen Wall set from Make it Crafty.
I made this card for Challenge #9 at Make it Colourful where the theme is to color shine. I attempted to the color the kitchen first starting with the stainless steel elements. The smaller areas were easy but I it became difficult on the larger areas, such as the refrigerator.
The kitchen set comes with the two images separated which makes it versitle. I chose to use them independently then to create a flap for the card on the front so the isle could be moved. The flap was attached with a strip of folded paper and can open all the way.
Here’s the inside of the card with the flap open which shows the back wall of the kitchen and Grandma cooking. The tag is large enough to write a small sentiment or a card can be attached to the back for more writing.
Here’s one last view showing just the front part of the card/flap in the open position. The Prima flower was colored with Copic markers and the Make it Crafty laser cut swirls are covered with Liquid Pearls.

Did you know? A schooner is a type of sailing vessel characterized by the use of fore-and-aft sails on two or more masts with the forward mast being no taller than the rear masts. According to the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica, the first vessel called a schooner was built by builder Andrew Robinson and launched in 1713 from Gloucester, Massachusetts. Legend has it that the name was the result of a spectator exclaiming “Oh how she scoons”, scoon being similar to scon, a Scots word meaning to skip along the surface of the water. Robinson replied, “A schooner let her be.” According to Walter William Skeat, the term schooner comes from scoon, while the sch spelling comes from the later adoption of the Dutch and German spellings (“Schoner”).
