Recipe Card for a swap on Scraps of Color

This was a fun but a Challenging swap I had the hardest time finding embellishments for my recipe lay out. But it worked out in the end! I found some paper at Joann Craft store but they did not have enough of the card stock left so I took the one sheet that I had and copied it at Office was 50 cents a copy but I only need three sheets I copied it on to 110 weight card stock! I also could not find a chili pepper on any of my Cricut cartridges...I was going to use a free clip art image but that meant me having to cut each one out...My Cricut has made me lazy!....I found a shape close to it and only had to cut the bottom of the die cut rather than having to cut the whole image out! Added Inkssentials Glossy accents for a dimensional effect! The recipe is from the website http Here are a few pictures of some of my embellishments and the finished product.... Happy Crafting Everyone!

The glossy accent was not completely dry

Distressed and embossed with a Sizzix  embossing plate


  1. it - Suzyque - you've inspired me for the recipe swap I'm doing at The Shack! I love your sombrero and peppers - what a great way to embellish!

  2. Now why you have to go and do that Suzyque! I'm tasting some Nachos now, lol! Great LO! I think the sombrero and peppers were a great touch too!

  3. Hi Suzyque! You rocked the recipe swap! I'm loving the details and cracking up about your story on the cardstock. Now I'm wishing I joined that swap! lol
