Hello, Friends! I’m popping in real quick today to share a card that I just made with the new Crafty Secrets Kitchen Memories Digital kit. If you love vintage kitchen images and ephemera, you are going to want to get this kit! Sandy will be loading it into the Crafty Secrets online store any day now, so you’ll want to keep your eyes open.
This 5″ x 7″ side fold card uses digital papers, stamps, images and ephemera from the kit. I just love this lady who is taking a break from cooking to read a book. When I was a young mom, I used to prop my books up on the window sill above my kitchen sink so I could read while I was doing dishes. I had so little time to read that I grabbed the opportunity any way I could! She reminds me of that!
I colored the image and then fussy cut it, mounting it on on another sheet of vintage paper from the pack. There is a huge selection of papers in this kit! The micro red gingham ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon was the obvious choice for this card.
I added UTEE to my sentiment heart, giving it the appearance of an epoxy embellishment. And, I love the little cookbook. I fussy cut it from the ephemera sheet, inked the edges and then folded in half along the crease line. Then I rolled it over the edge of a pencil to round the pages and make it look dimensional. I glued around the edges, and down the center crease line on the back, then kind of pushed the edges toward the center as I was gluing it down to make it look like a real open book. The doily you see here is also from the collection, and there are several more. They look really dimensional, especially when you pierce the openings as I did here. And wait til you see how I used the other half of this doily inside the card.
I inked the edges, stamped it with a sentiment from Grand Greetings and then glued the sides down, forming a pocket for my tea bag. Fun, right?
