When I first saw the Apron of Love Bundle, I immediately thought of making some cute feminine projects. Then I realized there are male elements in the bundle as well. So I was inspired to make today’s card for a Dad who loves to BBQ. We all know at least one of those, don’t we?

The bundle is $45, so all you have to do is add an ink pad, a pack of paper, or something else that is at least $5, and you get to choose a free Sale-A-Bration item!
