Share a Recipe Card

June 15 Projects 034 

Today's project is a cute & playful way to share a recipe this summer.  The kicker is the name of the recipe "Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppy seed Dressing." Things that make you smile. It really would make a great light summer salad.

To make the card front cut an angle off your designer paper. I used Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper. I know, no flamingos in this design. I'm all mixed up today. The lacey edge was created with the Eyelet Border Punch. Add a little Black Gingham Ribbon.

The chalk board effect was created by stamping with Whisper White Craft Ink onto Basic Black card stock using the greeting from the Voila stamp set.

Tip: Use the brush tip end Real Red and Old Olive markers to color and stamp the apple from the Tart and Tangy Stamp set.  Huff to moisten the ink. The Scallop Circle Punch makes a lovely mat for your image. Add a mini clip to give the illusion of hanging from the ribbon. Stampin' Dimensions will give the image height.

Tool Tip: Add a little fun to your project by adding a perforated tear off recipe. It's so easy to do. Simply run your perforate tool along the edge of a ruler and your favorite recipe can be shared.

Quirky Yet Masculine Birthday Card

June 15 Projects 024 

Something quirky, yet masculine was in order for my Children's Pastor/Engineer Son.  This card fit the bill.  The To the Nines Designer Series Paper gives the masculinity that I was looking for, and the Under the Stars stamp set coupled with Rich Razzleberry give just the right amount of quirky.

Tip: Try loosely knotting and then tucking ribbon for a slightly different look. Use your imagination, and it almost looks like a bow tie. :)

Notice that the Sahara Sand Card Stock is sort of the chameleon of the neutrals.  It takes on the hues of surrounding colors.
