There was a new stamp & die combo release back in January of some really cute kitchen style stamps. I thought "The Baking In The Kitchen" set would make a cute gift for a bridal shower.
The last few bridal showers I attended they asked us to bring a copy of our favorite recipe to give to the Bride. I always want to give her a recipe on a cute pre-made card. But, sometimes I don't have the right one on hand. Now I can always make my own original and unique designs.
So I decided to make some recipe cards using the Envelope Punch Board and add some of the elements of this new stamp & die combo. Let's get started on how I created my project today.
Step 1. I started by cutting the white cardstock to measure 5" x 3 1/2".
I placed it on the punch board right at the place where it says score guide and made my first punch.
I then moved it over to the 2 1 /2" marker and punched again.
I now have the start of my recipe card.
Step 2: To make this look like a recipe card, I cut the section of cardstock to the right of my 2nd punch. I wanted a rounded corner so I placed it back in the Punch Board. There is a corner rounder on the back of the Board.
Step 3: My recipe card is now ready to be stamped with the "From the Kitchen of" sentiment. I also stamped lines on the recipe card. This is a stamp from my own collection. I made 4 of these cards for my little gift. Now the cards are ready to add some embellishments.
Step 4: I stamped the images with Memento Black ink and then colored with various alcohol markers. Once the coloring was finished I used the matching dies to cut them out and attach to my recipe card.
