LFIF Recipe Card Challenge




Hello everyone! Here is the card that I made for Peachy Keens LFIF challenge. This time the challenge is to make a recipe card and use a Peachy Keen face.
I got my inspiration for the girl from Miss Emma at My Creative Time. She showed how to print and cut the girl from Imagine Best Friends and stamp the face. So that's what I did. I don't have an E2, so I just flood filled the body with a skin tone and printed and cut it.
I made a Z Fold Pocket Card by cutting a 12 X 4 1/2 inch piece of cardstock. I scored it at 6 and 9 inches. I then cut a piece of cardstock at 2 7/8 X 4 1/2 for the pocket on the inside. I used a Sampin Up Poka Dot stamp and stamped the paper and cut and puched a trim piece for the pocket. I cut the girls body at 4 inches and her hair, shoes, and head I printed and cut. The only reason I printed and cut her head was to get the pig tails. I trimmed off the pig tails, glued them to the head and stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kids stamp. For her clothes, I used the Cricut Craft Room! I was able to size the clothes to her body. You are able to combine Imagine cuts and regular Cricut carts....I LOVE this feature in CCR! So I used the dress from Once Upon A Princess and the hat from Paper Doll Dress Up. I used a white pen and did some highlights on her dress and added some white trim to her dress and the ball of the hat. The list was cut from Christmas Cheer and I hand wrote Cookies at the top and some squiggle lines for the writing. I printed out the recipe and mounted it to cardstock. The gingerbread men were cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and I used white and black pens for the highlights and stickles for the buttons. I added a tab by punching an oval shape, folded it in half, and added twine to the end and slid it into the pocket.  I also printed the inside sentiment from my computer and added Glossy Accents to the girls eyes.
I hope you survived my EXTREMELY long post and liked my card! Have a great day and thanks for looking!
I am going to link this up and Robins Creative Cottage in her linky/stamp release party!
