Recipe Card Swap

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Tuesday, July 21, 2009
Hiya! Just a quick note to share a little project I did today! I organized a small recipe card swap with some of my friends and the deadline came and went without me finishing my own recipe card! I struggled with this one and just couldn't come up with a design that I liked.. then.. it hit me! And, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. I need to go check on my sewing machine and make sure that it has stopped smoking (just kidding - I don't think it's ever seen so much use!!) and to see if it forgives me for making it work so hard this afternoon! Anyway, here is my recipe card!

My watermark kind of covers it up, but I've always wanted to try this ribbon technique.. I guess it's called pleating, but it's looser, "sloppier" maybe? It was super fun and a lot easier than I had imagined, once I got the hang of it!

Thanks for stopping by!
