Voila! - Bon Appetit!!

Today we have a 6x6 recipe card! Yep, I have a whole album going thanks to my MSN group members, because we swap every once in a while to exchange not only recipes, but ADORABLE 6x6 pages too! In fact, my recipe album is my most favorite cookbook in my cabinet. If you haven't started one of these, I highly recommend them!

Okay, so first you have to print out your recipe onto cardstock, which I did here. Sometimes you can design the page around the recipe, and sometimes you have to fit the recipe to the page. The method is up to you.

This page is done using my blender pen with reinkers to highlight the chef, and then special papers and punches and ribbons and some heat embossing finish this off. Here's the deets:

Sets: Voila!, Baroque Motifs (see swirl on recipe section), Totally Tabs (on tab)
Colors: Soft Sky DP, Apricot Appeal, Black
Other: Clear embossing powder, embossing pen, blender pen, tab punch, rhinestone brad (SU! fire collection), scallop edge punch (SU! - NEW!), black grosgrain, sticky strip (to hold the sky paper down for easy sliding of recipe card)

Ready to tackle a project like this and add fun to your cooking time? Then get some friends together and swap - you'll be glad you did!
