I only took a couple of pictures.
I started out by cutting out bases from old recipe cards that belonged to my dad. He loved getting his weekly cards way back in the 1970's! He made a few of the recipes but after he collected them all, he sort of lost interest and moved on to collecting wild life cards...I think he just loved getting mail!
Anyway, I coated them with gesso, then red paint, some silver metallic paint...after they were dry, I stamped them, inked them, highlighted them with white and added one of my favorite pictures. My sister loves taking selfies when I visit her. I just cut her out of the picture using picmonkey, duplicated it and printed it out on my printer.
I then balled up wax paper and buffed each piece with it to give it a bit of a wax coating. That is why I also sent them in wax paper...
I then made a sheet of "facts"...at the last minute, I dirtied them up and added some things handwritten. Yeah, I am messy!
They are each a bit different in where I placed my username, picture etc. So glad we only had 27 to do this round!
I had loads of fun making these and can't wait to get the rest of my collection.
