Recipe Card

Thanks for stopping by today. Today I'm showing you a recipe card that I made for the upcoming recipe card swap at Magnolia Measuring Cup Blog. To tell you the truth I really had no idea where to begin. I knew that I wanted red to be part of it, then I just started layers colors. Usually I color Tilda first then find papers to match, this time I did the exact opposite! I came up with the design first then I colored Tilda Last.

Challenges: Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge #9

I used CTMH DP and CS, Prima roses. The fabric flower ribbon is from JoAnns. The apron charm and sparkly pearl picks are from Michaels. Pearl half rounds are from SU. I watercolored the tulips on the recipe and Tilda's dress, the rest is done with copics. I attached a piece of acetate to the front of the recipe card to protect the recipe when it is being used.

Have a great day! I'm glad you stopped by....see you soon.

This is wonderful. What a great idea it would be to put a yummy cake recipe in for a birthday of someone far away. If you can make them a cake atleast sent them a recipe. LOL.
