Salt and Pepper Card

This fun card is from From My Kitchen. I love the shape of the card... it's a recipe card! The card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and will fit in a standard A2 envelope.

The salt and pepper shakers are cut at 3".  I inked around all the blue layers with royal blue ink.

I attached the pepper shaker with 1/8" pop dots and the salt shaker with 1/4" pop dots.  I just LOVE the dimension!! I drew the holes on the top of the shakers with my white gel pen. I added these flat back self adhesive pearls in sets of three (I buy mine at Craft Warehouse).

I printed this sentiment using Hobby font at 23 points. My EK Success Photo Label punch was perfect for this card.  I hand cut the blue layer to mat.  This blue textured card stock is from my scraps, but I know it's Bazzill.  I added some white gel pen stitches on these blue layers only.

Here you can see how the gel pen stitches match the white stitching on the blue ribbon.  I found this ribbon on clearance for 50 cents at Walmart. The polka dot back ground paper is from Heidi Grace.

Instead of having a card base that opens to the side (which would be easier with this card shape)  I made this card open from the top so it can be displayed.  My card base measures 5 1/2" x 7 1/2" and folds in the center.
