Paper.  Oh how I love it!  I recently bought three of Authentique’s new designer paper bundles and just had to create a sketch to show them off.  Here it is.Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Base for DP: 4″ x 5-1/4″
DP Panels: 1-1/4″ x 5-1/8″
Sentiment Panels and Borders: 4-1/4″ x 2-1/2″
4″ x 2-1/4″
4-1/4″ x 2″
4″ x 1-3/4″

And here are the cards!

Look at all that scrumptious dilly-icious designer paper (dp)!!  The panels were all embossed to add some great texture and to tie the different strips together into one cohesive piece.

After cutting each strip for the front of the cards, there was a small piece leftover.  I added each of these to the inside of the corresponding cards.  There was no waste of this precious perfect paper!

Here are the individual cards with their recipes listed directly below them.
