How to Make an Altered Recipe Card with Dew Drop Highlights

Hello and welcome.  Shelly with you today, sharing an altered recipe card.

My niece recently got married.  For her bridal shower, guests were asked to fill out a provided recipe card for the bride – I decided to go a little above and beyond a simple handwritten recipe (and now she wants me to do all her recipe cards – lol!)

Gather Your Supplies:

 

 

Make It:

 

  • Cover front and back of card with patterned paper and cardstock (I used white cardstock on the back)
  • Optional – a little machine stitching

 

  • Next, either hand write or use computer to type up your recipe
  • Add machine stitching if desired, ink edges
  • Add recipe title with alpha stickers
  • Add cardstock sticker using dimensional foam tape for dimension (I used the Perfect Crafting Pouch to “deactivate” sticker first to make it easier to work with)
  • I added an Index Sticker from the paper collection to the top of card – I used a small piece of cardstock cut from the branding strip of my patterned paper to cover a word on the index sticker that did not apply to my recipe
No project is complete without adding Dew Drops as the finishing touch – they add color, dimension and just a bit magic

And finally, since this was a gift, I signed & added a sticker to the back of the card.
