Morning everyone....well I'm pleased to tell you my new little project has dried, and I've put the finishing touches together. I am really pleased with how this little project has turned out....I first thought of the idea last year, but couldn't work out how I wanted it to look. Then suddenly when I was laying in bed the other night looking at the ceiling it came to me!!
I wanted to create a card that included a recipe for a cupcake that the person could keep, but wasn't sure how to make it practically so that the card and the recipe could both be used and still look pretty. Recently I bought these new card blanks - huge oblongs - not that practical for a lot of my cards, but as it turned out perfect for my recipe cards!
I created the removable recipe card on my computer, using a lovely simple recipe that anyone can follow. I've put the main recipe on the front of a piece of pink card and the frosting recipe on the back. The pink card is embellished with a handmade paper cupcake and loads of glitter glue. Once dried I laminated this to protect it and then cut out the shape I wanted.
I then used a piece of flowery backing paper on the main card, and created a pocket for the recipe card out of plain pink paper, which I wrapped with some gorgeous ribbon. I then added the words to the front of the pocket.
Looking at my finished item I decided that the card looked a little boring when the recipe card was removed and so I decided to add one more little paper cupcake underneath the recipe card which is revealed once the recipe is removed.
I am so pleased with how this has tuned out - a very cute card for someone who you want to send a little extra something to.
I think I will try and make a whole range of these cards, covering different recipes maybe. The next one is obviously chocolate cake!!
Anyway, this is pure showing off this morning, so I hope I haven't bored you! I'm off to the boyfriend's this weekend, so probably no internet for me - how will I cope??
Hope you have a fab weekend and I'll see you next week!
