Appetizer Recipe Cards

Good Evening All,

I am hosting an Appetizer Recipe Swap over at JS. Also, this weekend we are having an online crop there as well. So, I decided to use this swap as a chance to challenge my scrappin' buddies to work on their cards. I have completed 12 cards thus far. The recipe I chose to share is for Chocolate Chip Dip. Now, if you have never tried this be forewarned, it is extremely yummy and addictive.

I designed 2 different cards.

For the first one, I printed out the recipe on red cardstock and attached it to a 6x6 card base.
Then, I cut out the canopy/awning using the My Community Cricut Cart.
Next I used my new Lyrical Letters cart for the "bakery" phrase. (I highly recommend this one for lettering)
Then I used the Paper Doll Dress Up cart to cut out the apron. I used my new "worn lipstick' shade distressing ink by Tim Holtz on the apron edges and attached the ribbon at the waist.
Finally, I stamped the chocolate chip cookie on the recipe and the "made especially for you" tag on the back which has my scrapping name - southernbellesmom

Now for the second design. First, I printed the recipe onto beige colored cardstock.
Then I used my new Swiss Cheese Border Punch on the sides. I also used my brown distressing ink on the edges.
Next, I attached the recipe to a piece of brown cardstock and rounded the corners.
Then, I attached it to my 6x6 card base. The base has neat little baking/cooking phrases printed in various fonts. So cute!!!!
Finally, I used some brown rafia on the top of the brown to add a little more color/interest. I also stamped my tag on the back of this one. I really wish I still had some of those cute little Hershey's Kisses stickers I got while visiting that scrumptious place, but I have already used them. I think that would've looked great on the upper right hand corner of the recipe. Who knows, I may hand cut my own for these cards. If I do, I will take pics and add them to my blog. Please let me know what you think. :) :) :)

These were so yummy to create. I would love for you to come over to JS and participate in our crop. You also still have time to sign-up for the recipe swap (Swap closes Friday night the 19th).

Hope to see you there,

Carol :)

I love these!!! My fav is the 2nd one though - I love how the swiss cheese punch gives the chocolate chip feel to the recipe cards!!! I think hershey kisses would be fabulous on the bottom layered in 3's maybe with brown stickles on them and then little whisps of crepe paper coming out of the top to make them look like a real hershey kiss!!

PS the recipe sounds amazing!!!
