Not Just a Pretty 6x6 Sheet of Paper!






Challenge #2:
This weeks challenge is to create a recipe card using multiple layers of paper and embellishments. A recipe card should be as beautiful as a regular card! Get layering! 
Say hello to our two new design team members Kathleen and Lauri! DT members are still being selected so feel free to send me your work. 
The card above is a Disney theme recipe card I made for a Disney Christmas Cookie swap I am in on SCS. I bought this Cinderella stamp a few years ago after visiting Disney with my family. The cookie recipe is a family tradition and the BEST sugar cookie we have ever tried. I used two layers of quality card-stock, a strip of tacky tape with glitter, Diamond Stickles around the oval scallop. With only three ingredients this recipe will surprise you! 
This card was created by Kathleen. I love how even though she had a large recipe to work with she added a DP and scalloped edge to the card. The focal-point is her adorable chicken!!!! So many animals and foods can be created with SU punches and other die cut machines. 
This card was created by Lauri. She incorporates many layers and popped up images into her card. 

For the past year, I have wanted to put create a recipe collection of my and my mother's recipes for my daughter and this is just what I needed to get started!! I started with the recipe I use most often at home...a very simple tomato sauce that my grandmother passed on to my mother. Julie's store is my source for most of my non-SU! paper, which is primarily Basic Grey. I used Basic Grey Marrakesh for this layout. The layout is from Triple the Sketch (65)! It is really a scrapbook layout that I modified!! I also decided to use some Crafty Secrets stamps sets. I am so excited about this challenge blog....it will get me to put my recipes together and I will get all sorts of new ones from others participating!

Please Post your recipe card on your Blog with a link to our challenge and leave a comment on the post with a link to your work. 
Let us know what you think!!!!
