Recipes 2

If you are thinking, mmm, this looks familiar, then you saw my Recipes 1 post back in spring. My husband and I have our last wedding of the year (this will be #5, 3 that he has been in) coming up next week. This is a part of their gift (I'm still contemplating the other part). The colors are much more 'true' on the second picture.

The light pink and green in the patterned paper are very close to her wedding colors--I guess their wedding colors, but I'm pretty sure he didn't choose them :)

Since I've done this project before, please see my previous post for all the details on how it was made and who's free SVG files I used~because they were all free :) Really the only thing I did differently was used a VersaMark Pen to wet emboss (rather than a VersaMark Ink Pad), it just made it less 'messy' and I put rhinestones on the letters. For those of you without a cutting machine, you can replicate this easily. Follow the above link, click on the tutorial. I only used my cricut to decorate, so it can easily be done without!


One of the neat things about this is I share one or two of our favorite recipes for each section, so the newlyweds get tried and true (and easy!) recipes.

Its been awhile since I've done any challenges but here goes:
All Sorts- anything but a card
Do You Stack Up- Emboss it- I wet and dry embossed!
