When I saw these little Flapper lady bakers at My Favorite Things I just knew I had to make them mine and I knew I had to combine them with a recipe. Well it just so happened that I signed up for a swap that I needed to make 16 recipe cards decorated in a vintage style. This is what I came up with.
The front of the card is decorated with the Flapper cuties and some fun Valentine papers. I had to add some stitching in there and some inking of course.
For the recipe I used some Lunchbag Kraft Text paper from Kraft Outlet. It has the neatest texture. I used a Notebook Edge Die-namics die from My Favorite Things for the top edge of the recipe card and then added lines with a sepia pen to continue the vintage look. The card just slides into the front pocket.
The back of the card has a fun Martha Stewart punched heart and one of the sentiments from the stamp set. There's also a little criss-cross pocket to hold any notes the person who receives the recipe might want to jot down.
