Criss Cross Recipe Cards

Wow! What a crazy couple of weeks! Sale-A-Bration has kept me very busy!! I'm a little sad that today's the last day, but also a bit relieved that I can slow down a bit. No workshops booked this week! Maybe I'll have time to play!

At my last Stamp Club, we made Criss Cross cards, and we were talking about how great these would be for recipes when you make a meal or bake for someone. Well, my friend, Sherri, had ordered the In the Kitchen of set, and we realized it would fit perfectly on the inserts! So, of course, I ordered it too and set to work. I decided these would be perfect thank you cards for my Epicure Selections hostesses!

I used the Summer Picnic paper (what else?) with Real Red, Bashful Blue and Old Olive. I found a short recipe in my Epicure cook book (this really is a small stamp - not a lot of room for a big recipe, but I suppose you could use the back of the card too). And isn't it cool that you can write the recipe in with Stampin' Write markers and have the writing match the paper? :) (Yes, I'm a little bit obsessive-compulsive! LOL!)
