Cards from Recipes

One of my goals this year is to work through all the classes in my online accounts, so I used "recipes" from the BPC self-paced Cooking Up Cards class to create several cards last month.

I used Kim Kesti's recipe (the same ones I used on some of my Valentine's cards) and scraps from my Non-Traditional Valentine's Day layout to create these first three cards.

Betsy Veldman's recipe was the inspiration for this anniversary card for my parents.

And Teri Anderson's recipe was the inspiration for this last card.

These cards were fun to make and such a great way to use up some pieces from my scrap bin.
