I’ve taken a few elements from the very versatile In the Kitchen Digital Stamp Set and used them to create a recipe card holder.I concocted this design myself.It’s very much like a tent fold card.The finished base measures 8″ x 5″,the covers 6″ x 4″ and the cards inside are some free printables I searched on the net,trimmed down.Here’s a pic of the inside :

I printed the freebie papers and images onto semi gloss photo paper.The images have been coloured with Promarkers and the edges have been sponged with Distress Ink.I found the photo paper a little different to work with and had to dab the ink on rather than use the usual circular motion.I also found for some reason the ink on the blue spotty paper gave more of a mottled finish.But I like it!I’ve hung some of the utensils up and flipped the oven glove image to create a pair.I just couldn’t resist icing the cute cupcake with Liquid Pearls too.I bound it all together using my Cinch.I really need to use this more often but then the same goes for all the masses of craft tools I buy.All I need to do now is copy out some of my fave recipes that I’ve picked up from various sources onto the cards.Oh,and get baking of course 😉
