What do you think of the Rose Red? Too much? Anyways here is what I did! I used my computer to print up the recipe and cut it out then I matted it on a piece of close to cocoa that measures 5 1/8 x 4 1/4, and that is finished!
For the 6x6 card itself I just used a piece of pumpkin pie cardstock and stamped the orange on 2/3rd's of it with the orange using pumpkin pie ink. I then used a piece of 12x12 cardstock to cut 1/2inch x 6 inch pieces of close to cocoa (so for 25 recipe cards I used less than one sheet of cardstock!) and I also used the new designer series paper called Summer Picnic. I used just a little over 2 sheets for this as the orange is 1inch x 6 inches...getting 24 pieces from one sheet of designer paper!
I then layered the cocoa and the desinger paper and attached the ribbon loops to the back of the recipe card. to add a finishing touch, I addedstamped one of the salloped flowers from So Many Scallops (a free Sale-a-bration set, contact me for more info!) in rose red on shimmery white cardstock and punched it out using the scalloped punch! I also used my 1 3.8th circle punch to make a mat for the orange which is stamped on shimmery white using pumpkin pie classic ink. And last but not least I used the 1/1th hole punch to add a little more detail. What do you think? I hope the swap participents like it as much as I do, but I hope they enjoy the yummo recipe too!
