World Card Making Day 2010 Recipe Cards

World Card Making Day 2010 – Recipe Cards

World Card Making Day is apparently only 5 years old. I’ve been wanting to throw a big card making party at my home for the past couple of years…and again, it didn’t work into the schedule. But, World Card Making Day did happened to fall on the same day that the youth group at my church is having a bake auction. So I created a couple of recipe cards to go along with the two items that I baked. These recipe’s are amazing! I love chocolate, but even these two desserts are good enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. I thought I’d sweeten the deal by including some cute recipe cards.

World Card Making Day 2010 – Carrot Cake Card

Carrot Cake Recipe Card

I made Carrot Cake (minus nuts and raisins) with cream cheese icing. I can literally say that the only redeeming qualityof this cake is the carrots! The cake must be made the night before…I guess it needs to repent in the dark refrigerator overnight for all of the calories it has and the temptation it will cause the next day. =) I think the chef on the card has indulged in too much carrot cake!

World Card Making Daya 2010 – Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

both recipe cards

Were you looking for something different for the chocolate chip peanut butter cookie recipe card? Well, I thought the carrot cake card turned out sooo cute that I just copied it! I doubt the same person will bid on both my items so this way two people are blessed with this cute card. I think the recipe for the cookies came originally from allrecipes.com. It’s called “whole jar of peanut butter cookies” or something like that. I think it should be called, “melt in your mouth peanut butter cookies”. I live in Colorado, so the recipe has been modified slightly to accommodate the high altitude.

I opted for orange for these cards because, well, it’s October! That, and the pan I’m using for the carrot cake has a copper bottom. And orange reminds me of the color of carrots.

Regarding supplies:

Embossing Plate – dots from Sizzix

Paper – The Paper Company
Recipe – a couple of coworkers gave me

World Card Making Day – Third Auctoin Item

I did make one more item for the auction. One day the hot chocolate was sitting out which got me to thinking about making some hot chocolate treats. I’ve seen these at craft shows…so the conecpt isn’t new. But I think the packaging turned out nice. I just raided my stash of chrstmas mugs and created this last auction item.

I created this project with everything I had on hand.

Mugs – two matching from my stash
Cocoa bags – disposible cake decorating bags
