Happiness is Homemade

Hi - here's a card for a friend who always has a welcoming piece of homemade cake when you go for a coffee. The set of stamps I have used I must have had for at least 2 years and this is their first outing - whoops!
The stamp set is made by Creative Expressions and is titled "Vintage Cooking" I used 2 Tim Holtz inks to distress around the edges of each square. All the papers are from the Hobby House - some are from
First addition paper - "Summer Breeze" and "Daydream" and the other from Craftwork Cards - Glitter Candy Cane Pad.
This is the inside of the card-sorry photography is wonky! Here I used another of the stamps from the set and one of Martha Stewart corner punches.

The individual stamps on the front I raised up and the sentiment is also from the set. I used a spellbinders die to showcase the sentiment and used two brads - a spoon and a food processor I have also had for ages, purchased from the Eyelet Outlet. I finished the card with a few gems.

This is the stamp I used on the back of my card, again from the same set. I love this and think it will be getting many more outings xxx

I am entering this in the following challenges -
