Good morning, hope you are well and not amongst those poor souls caught up in the atrocious weather conditions we’ve had in the UK. I send all good wishes to you all.
It is showcase day today over on the MilkCoffee Blog and our theme this time is Anything but a Card.
So what did I do? Good question. Well I did struggle with this one a little as I am a card maker through and through but I am also a keen baker. Oh yes I can throw cake batter into a cake tin with the best of them and so, to preserve my favourite cookbook from my floury fingers I decided to make some recipes cards and a box to store them in.
Thankfully I found a template in an old magazine and as it fitted nicely onto a sheet of A4 it was easy to construct. I used my Centura Pearl as it is the strongest card I own and once I had stuck the thing together I matted papers from the LOTV Always and Forever paper pad onto dark pink card.
The image is the gorgeous Charlotte and her Strawberry Pudding, see her in the MilkCoffee shop here, coloured with Spectrum Noirs.
The computer generated ‘RECIPES’ was cut using a Spellbinders Ribbon Banner die and the little cupcake is made from a Martha Stewart mould. Isn’t it dinky! Barely a mouthful though!! :)
The box is quite small so I used a die to cut the cards to go inside which I will laminate at a later date.
