A Recipe Greeting Card

Do you have an old worn-out cookbook that you are thinking about throwing away? Today I will show you how to take a recipe from an old cookbook and reuse it by making a unique greeting card.
The theme this week for Mo's Digital Challenge #86 is "Recipe".  One of the ways to participate in this challenge is to make a card that has to do with cooking. The winner will be picked in a random drawing tonight.
How I Made The Card
(1.) The base for this card is ivory cardstock and it measures 5" by 6.5".
(2.) The background paper (green with coffee cups) is from a packet of DCWV "Vintage Collage Stack" patterned paper. I punched the corners with a Martha Stewart corner punch.
(3.) I used the digital image "What's Cookin'?" from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and then cut it out.
(4.) I chose the recipe "Nut Pie" from an old 1930s vintage cookbook. I tore around the edges and then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Old Paper).
(5.) I stamped "Yummy" on a piece of cardstock and framed it with a lighter color. I then glued it to the lower corner of the recipe.
(6.) I embellished the card with two faux buttons that I made with a Martha Stewart punch.

This is a fun and easy card to make and is perfect for all the cooks that you know. Please leave share your thoughts in the Comments Section below.
