KOM Slider Card

Here is another project I wanted to share with you using this months Rubber Cafe' Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month!

I created this fun fold card using the Easy Slider Card Die Template.



To begin you will need:
An 11" x 4 1/4" green panel folded in half to create a top folding A2 card.
A 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" panel of yellow cardstock
A 5 1/4" x 4" panel of patterned paper
A 4 3/4" x 3 3/4" panel of white cardstock



Adhere the yellow panel to the front of the green card with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.  Adhere the white panel to the card front with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.



Lay the Easy Slider Card Die Template on the patterned paper panel as shown and run it through your die cut machine.



Cut a yellow panel slightly smaller than the patterned paper panel.



Adhere the patterned paper panel to the second yellow panel as shown.
The yellow paper is the slider.



You can see here how the front will slide open.



Adhere this panel to the card front by using a thin line of Scrap Happy Sheer Glue around the edge so that it can still slide open.

Tie ribbon to the top of the yellow slider panel.
Create the main panel by stamping the apron on a white die cut oval and coloring it.
Back with patterned paper die cut ovals and adhere to card.



Add sentiment to the front as shown.
Stamp sentiment with red ink on the inside.





I hope you enjoyed today's fun fold Slider card and that you will give it a try!  I predict that you will LOVE the results!  Stop by daily to see even more great samples using this months Creative Cafe' Kit.

What's Cookin' Good Lookin?

I am so excited to share this week's card using The Rubber Cafe's 

Did you see what I did?  
I combined the skirt sticker, included in the kit, with the girl image from the stamp set!  
How stinkin' cute is that?   I placed the sticker on a piece of acetate that I rescued from the trash and then applied Scrap Happy Sheer Glue to the back of the acetate with the Tiny Detailer Kit.  (Which helps you place your glue more precisely and accurately.)

I colored the rest of my image with Copic Markers and used various Echo Park - Made from Scratch papers included in the kit to finish my card.

My pretty little lady and the circle element, are popped up with Kool Tak foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my project!

Supplies:
Stamps, Papers, Stickers:   Now We're Cookin' Creative Cafe Kit 
Adhesive:  Scrap Happy Sheer Glue,  Kool Tak Foam Tape
Glitter:  You're So Fine Glitters in Copper, Limeade Green and Canadian Blue

Recipe Gift Cards!

Hello TRC Fans!  Today I have a fun project to share with you using the November Creative Cafe' Kit - Now We're Cookin'.  Using a perforating tool, I created some tear-apart recipe cards that you can give as a gift to your favorite cook.  You can fill out your favorite recipes before giving or you can leave them blank to let the cook fill them in!

Here is my project:


To create this fun gift set, you will need to cut the green cardstock to 5 1/2 x 9 1/4".  Then use your perforating tool at the 3 1/4" and 6 1/2" marks on your paper.  Each recipe card is 2 3/4 x 5" and layered onto a slightly larger piece of patterned paper.  I stamped the images from Stamping Utensils which is the add-on stamp set for this month's kit.  Here is a close-up....


So you can either fill out your favorite recipes and pass them on to a special friend OR you can leave them blank for your friend to use (maybe she will give them back to you with some new recipes)  HAHA

Hope you will give this cool recipe card gift card a try!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Double Pocket Recipe Card

Today, I have made a super fun Double Pocket Card with this months Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month!

This would be such a great way to present a recipe to someone.  I love to make a dish for someone and give take it to them with the recipe.

Here's my Double Pocket Card.


Here are what the little pull out tags look like.


Pull out these items from your kit to get started:
1 sheet of white cardstock
1 sheet of colored cardstock
3 sheets of coordinating patterned paper from the Echo Park paper pad
Silver Pearls
White Ribbon


Score the colored cardstock into 4 equal parts.


Cut across one of the score lines to the middle as shown.


Fold the bottom right panel over to the center score line.
Fold the top left corner over 1 1/2" from the center score line.


Adhere a 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" panel of patterned paper on to the top right portion with Scrap Happy Glue.


Fold the top panel over toward the right edge.


Create a 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" panel of patterned paper.  Cut the right corner off so that it fits on this panel as shown.  Adhere with Scrap Happy Glue.


Fold the cardstock upward on the center score line.


Trim a panel of patterned paper to fit the top panel as shown.


Fold the left hand section around backwards and adhere to the back of the card so that the card base looks like this.


Create a panel that is slightly smaller than the top panel out of white cardstock.


Decorate the front panel as you wish.


The "Instructions" tag measures 5" x 2 1/2"
The "Ingredients" tag measures 5" x 1 3/4"


Here is one last look at the finished card!


I hope you enjoyed today's Double Pocket Card and that you will give it a try!  I predict that you will LOVE the results!  Stop by daily to see even more great samples using this months Creative Cafe' Kit.
