All of us have certain obsessions in life; mine include recipe cards, cook books, culinary motifs, and botanical illustrations. I’m also obsessed with Pantone’s colors of the year: Rose-Quartz Pink & Serenity-Blue. In this illustrated design, I am inspired by these two obsessions together!
To me, recipe cards are more than just a way to keep your recipes organized. They help get your creative juices flowing, especially that cooking, after all, is a form of creative energy that needs continuous nurturing to keep you interested! This of course includes pretty stationery that makes you want to cook and experiment with new recipes!
A couple of days ago, I decided to revisit one of my old cookie recipes (jotted down on an ugly piece of paper). I made the mistake while mixing the dry ingredients, by adding the sugar to the flour and the baking soda. At that point I decided to improvise to salvage the recipe, and after taking them out of the oven, my cookies tasted divine. They were the best cookies I’ve ever made!
To celebrate, I decided to create new printable recipe cards for happy mistakes like this one – and as part of a decision to re-write all of my recipes on pretty stationery, instead of the unappetizing worn-out notebooks they were in. My husband saw the recipe cards and fell in love with them and suggested I put them up in my Etsy shop.
My two printable recipe cards come in two colors – that I later realized were inspired by Pantone’s colors of the year 2016. I’m so in love with combinations of pink and blue and although the blue shade I have used is not 100% Serenity-Blue I am happy with the results, to be found in the following links:
The cards are also in a standard 4×6″ and are easy to trim using the crop marks that I have included in the design.
I hope you enjoyed this post and looking forward to seeing you all in my next one!
