Seasoned to Perfection

Today marks the start of another Die Cuttin' Divas challenge. The theme this week is:
Blue, White and Silver

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 silver 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.

I cut the recipe card shaped front separately from the card base to I could attach it to the back of the card front (you can see how the card base starts below the shoulder of the recipe card).

Please take some time to craft with the Die Cuttin' Divas and link up your
and don't forget to include your die-cut!
