Recipe Card in a Card - Pocket Card

Do you ever make something and everyone starts asking if they can have your recipe? Me too! Well, I got to thinking that wouldn't it be neat to have a recipe and card in one so you could share your recipe and share some card love all at the same time. :) But, my class peeps took it one step further and thought, what if you gave a home-made food gift and attached this recipe card card to the gift. Then, you're giving a gift, a recipe and a card all at the same time. Add a pretty bow and perhaps a cookie cutter or wooden spoon and poof - you're done with a holiday or birthday or hostess gift. So, what am I talking about? Check it out!
Here's the card featuring the Eat Your Veggies Stamp Set and the September Spotlight paper pack. Love the Blackberry and Eucalyptus together, don't you?! And, with the school lined paper - fabulous!! So, you start by making a card from vanilla cardstock and attach a blackberry pocket to the front. I stamped the "pocket" with the Hexagon stamp first - isn't that a great look on the pocket? Love it!  Put adhesive on three sides of the strip of cardstock and attach to the card base to make your pocket. Add a sentiment and some baker's twine and a spoon from Eat Your Veggies to a scrap of the school lined cardstock and pop it up on top of the pocket. Stamp your recipe card next and attach a piece of eucalyptus cardstock to the top. The recipe card is made from the right side of the school lined paper. Why use this over an index card? You wouldn't have to but the specialty cardstock can be cut to a size that matches your card design and it's vanilla so it matches the vanilla cardstock base.
The recipe card sits inside the pocket and can be taken out to make the recipe and then tucked back in for cuteness purposes. :)
Here's the inside of the card - easy and fun and a great way to share some yummy recipe love with a friend.

What a great idea! This would be perfect for a recipe swap.
