Magnolia recipe card holder

Tomorrow, I will have some lovely CCdesign projects to show you. But for tonight I have another lovely Tilda holding a basket of baked goods. This little project is perfect when you want to give someone some of your favorite recipes, and don't want to have it scribbled down on a piece of dilapidated paper! The front starts of looking like a normal card. The ribbon is a tied closure for the folder.

When you open it up you have a little folder where you can place your recipe card. In this case I have a Rhubarb torte recipe which has a shortbread like crust! Yum,yum!!

The recipe card is decorated with a Magnolia cupcake! What a perfect image for a dessert.
stamps: Magnolia, SU Recipe Fun, SU Baroque Motifs
Ink: Stewart Superior Black, Groovy Guava
Paper: Groovy Guava, Pomegranate, K and Co DP, Celery DP, Rose Red DP, Fabriano Hot Press watercolor paper
Other: SU reinkers, Prima flowers, Spica glitter pens, Stickles, May Art ribbon, Crystal effects, rhinestones.
Image was stamped on watercolor paper and colored, then a little doodling was added to edge. All the matting was done, and embellishments added. Instead of leaves for the flower, I used baked goods from Magnolia which were water colored and then glazed with crystal effects so that they would look more realistic.
Cheerio, and have a great tomorrow!
