I made the recipe box and also three recipe cards to fit inside... using thick card covered in wallflower paper stack and lots of distress goodness and Tim Holtz idea-ology goodies .
So onto the details..
I covered some thick paper in wallflower paper stack, die cut the box and edged with walnut stain distress ink. I think I am hooked on playing with the ephemera packs from the idea-ology range, can't stop using them on everything! I layered up ephemera, all with distressed edges and inked with walnut stain distress ink. I also used a journaling tag, a vellum ephemera photo and some chit chat stickers.
To close the box, I added some holes and tied through these using some seam binding dyed with bundled sage distress ink.
Now for the cards inside ....
I used the same design piece of paper from french industrial paper stack. I wanted all 3 to be linked together as a set .
I covered each card with paper, then die cut using recipe cad die...I used a photo booth photo on each piece, I love these so many to choose from! Again I added layers of ephemera, distressed and inked.
I added some remnant rubs and some idea-ology given a distressed look using decoart paints, they are great for creating an aged look
The cards were all created in the same way, building up layers of ephemera , rub ons and idea-ology to reflect how I saw the photos..
And finally card no 3 , completed in the same way... I hope you like these as I had so much fun making them !
