Recipe Card Swap

Just finished up some recipe cards for a swap over at the Cricut message boards.  The first one is a recipe that my fiance's Grandmother makes, called Frog Eye Salad.  It's like ambrosia with a twist...itty, bitty round noodles.  Sounds weird, I know, but YUM! 

I used my Gypsy to weld together the letters and words, and cut the frog/lily pad using Create a Critter (my new "go to" cartridge).  Even if you're not a critter kind of person, this cartridge has so many other elements it's worth looking into. 

For the second card I used CAC (again) for the barn, and Everyday Paper Dolls for the chicken.  Not my favorite chicken, but the only one I have for now.  I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the barn (but I can't remeber the name of the folder...distressed lines maybe).  I was going to originally put the chicken on the "ground" in front of the barn but while I was inking the edges, one fell on top and I liked the way it looked more.  It no longer looked like a barn to me, but more of a chicken coop.  Anyway, with the chicken up there I had to make some changes for the recipe card as well.  That's when it hit me.  I could make the barn into a pocket and weld that chicken to a tag that slips behind it.  So, when you pull the chicken off the chicken coop, you find this...
