Recipe Pocket Card Tutorial

Hi Friends!! Happy Saturday to you all! Yay, Spring Break starts today for my daughter. What does that mean? Well, me staying up late and getting up late! I love it. We're planning to go on a trip at the end of the month but right now, it's up in the air. We had initially planned to go but we'll see.

I created this pocket card sort of randomly. I initially was just going to create a tag but it sort of evolved into a pocket card. I remembered I had created a tutorial in November of last year so I added a tutorial of this project. The only difference is that I had added a "recipe card" element to my tutorial. This pocket card is just an insert with no recipe.

The goal for this card was to actually use a few of my designer paper and card stock from my scrap pile. I had colored the image a while ago and really didn't know what to do with it. I could have made a regular card but I wanted to do something different so this is what I came up with.

I really don't like purple so I don't use it often but I had colored the image purple so I had to work with purple dps, card stock and embellishments.

Scroll down for the tutorial on the "Recipe Pocket Card".

Just a short post today. . .not much chit-chatting because I have nothing interesting to talk about. LOL!

Hope you all have a fabulous Saturday!!

Card Details:

Stamp: Can't remember, Inkadinkado (sentiment)
Paper: DCWV designer paper
Ink: Copic markers, SU Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Prima flowers, Deja View brad, Round Corner Punch, Grosgrain Ribbon

I think you did a great job with the purple, I myself don't like to use purple either. It is a hard color for me, I think everything else is so much easier!! LOL!
This is a great idea as a recipe card holder instead of only using it for a note or a letter.
Enjoy Spring break with your DD!!
Jodi =)
