Recipe Holder

A friend had been invited to a bridal shower and was asked to bring along a recipe and my task was to come up with something to present the recipe in. I made up the folder below and decorated the front using Ruby Rocket Cook papers


I added some embellished card to the inside and two pockets , one for the recipe and the other, I used to hold some miniature utensils.


I would like to add this card to the following Challenge:

80th Birthday card

My next card was for an 80th birthday. I am  really n love with box cards at the moment so when I was given the choice of what to make, well the choice was easy.

I used a basic card in a box from Cutting CafĂ©, cut it on the Zing and then made up my own flowers from Spellbinders dies. 

New Home Card

I was also asked to make a card for a couple moving into their new home.
I \made a house shaped card and embossed the front to look like bricks, added affront door which opens to reveal a key and a greeting and embellished with alphas and a pot of flower soft flowers

I would like to add this card to the following challenge:

I was recently asked to make a wedding card for a friends niece. I thought, as it had to travel quite a distance, that a matching box would be a good idea
I made an easel card using a combination of Spellbinders, Grand Calibur, Cheery Lyn and Memory Box dies as well as a Doodey greeting sticker.
I would like to add this card to the following challenge: Scribble and Scrap
