Stamp Simply #127 – Recipe Card with a Twist!

Recipe Card with a Twist! – Think of flipping through a recipe box filled with cards — the tabs/dividers come to my mind instantly. That’s where we are headed with this one. Make a card (for a recipe if you like, but it need NOT be a true recipe card) that has some tabbed element on it to give you that impression of a traditional recipe card in a box. This will be FUN — can’t wait to see YOUR creations!!!

And for my project today I made a quick little gift card holder:


Just a quick little gift card holder for when you need to extend thanks for a kindness done! Perfect for enclosing just a little something. I used my newest paper that I’m really loving – the 6 x 6 pad from Webster’s Pages called Postcards from Paris/Sweet as Cherry Pie. FUN papers — kind of dual themed, but blending well together in a rainbow of luscious colors. I sell it both as a KIT complete with ribbons, journal cards and embellishments, or individually. The sentiment is from Just a Note by JustRite.

I reduced the height of this card holder to allow for the tab on the top, making it so that it will still fit into a standard A2 sized envelope. Here’s the how to:

  • Cut paper 8.5 x 5.5″.

  • Score in from one short end 2″. This forms the bottom pocket.

  • Score in from other short end 3″. The becomes the top flap.


I cut my framed element from one of the sheets in the Postcards from Paris paper pack mentioned above using my Labels 13 Nestabilities by Spellbinders. I am told these new diesare in house, so I expect mine real soon. You can email me if you’d like a set saved for you ([email protected]). I stamped with VersaFine Vintage Sepia ink andembellished with buttons, Jute String, Kaiser Pearls and 100% Silk Ribbon in Ivory, using the Bow Easy. I used a Velcro Dot for my closure.


Here’s the inside pocket. Aren’t these fun papers! I used one of the small Journal Cards to insert inside. How fun to write your message of thanks on the note and tuck it in the pocket!

All items (except SU cardstock) used to make this project are available in The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. They are linked above, OR you can click the TABS above my BLOG HEADER, way up on top. And remember, the Webster’s Pages Postcards from Paris 6 x 6 paper pack can be purchased asa Kit, fully loaded with goodies, or individually. I know you’ll love it — it’s such a pretty paper package.


Reminder: The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Design Team will be having their first BLOG HOP on Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 8 a.m. EST— complete with a chance at some luscious goodies for you!!! Hope you can make it!!! And if you missed all the FAB projects created by the brand new DT, you can read one post down and click all the links — gorgeous stuff!!!
