|HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR COOKS|
The colour choice is about a neutral as it gets - black, white and silver (TIP - if you're having a bad colour day choose b&w plus one colour or a metallic and you can't go wrong).
I've rummaged around my ever-expanding box of Kaiser dies and cut out squares, ovals, cooking utensils and the greeting and then just assembled it on a silver background and stuck it to a white Regal single fold card. If you don't have all the dies, you can always substitute stickers or stamps for the greeting, and fussy cut pictures or stamped images for the utensils (or other cooking related items). The silver I have used is mirror board and consequently, is very shiny (not so evident in the photo).
If you like to theme your cards around gifts, cookbooks, aprons, actual utensils, and exotic ingredients are obvious accompaniments.
