Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday to ya! How is your week going? Mine is going pretty good so far. I hope all of you are enjoying your summer!
I am currently participating in a recipe swap and wanted to share my first recipe card set with you guys. This first recipe card set is way more intricate than my other 3 sets will be. I am working on those today, but I just had to go ahead and get this first one up because I haven't blogged in a few days. I spent 2 full days working on this first set. I have to make 12 of each card for the swap, so 12 of these bad boys. The main thing that took a lot of time was all the cutting and paper piecing. My Cricut and SCAL software definitely got a major workout! But it was so fun!
This is a 2 sided recipe card. One side has a cute little 'cocoa cafe' and the recipe (which is for hot chocolate jars) is on the opposite side. For the 'cocoa cafe,' I used the cutest set of files from Treasure Box Designs. You can find that HERE if you'd like. You'll have to scroll down a bit to see.

I popped up the little trees and the overhang on the window using Zap Dots.
This is the back of the recipe card. I used my laminator to laminate the recipe and the little picture that will pull out from behind the recipe. This ensures that it will slide out smoothly.
I added adhesive to the bottom part of the back of the recipe card so that it won't slide down and behind the recipe. It will only slide behind there just a tad.
Here is a picture of what the recipe could look like once fixed up. I thought these would make wonderful holiday gifts. I can't wait to make some of these in December! I thought that the girls would enjoy the picture so that they could have a visual.

Ok, off to work on the next recipe card sets! Fun! I hope y'all like this one! It was so fun to make! So glad I got to use up those svg files! I've had them for some time and haven't got to use them. :)
Thanks for dropping in today! Enjoy your day!
