Free Watercolor Recipe Card Download

April 29, 2015

My birthday is always the same weekend as Mother’s Day, so I’ve (kind of) gotten used to sharing the spotlight with my moms.  This year, I’m driving down to Reno the day before my birthday, and having breakfast with my mom and sister, my mom piped in, “Well that’s just perfect! We can celebrate your birth and me becoming a mom all at once.”  Yes mom.  Yes we can.

I may seem a bit bitter about this, and really, I’m not.  It’s just that I LOVE my birthday.  I LOVE being the center of attention, and getting showered with love and presents, so sharing that day isn’t exactly easy for me, although this year, I don’t have anything planned for my birthday, so maybe the idea of sharing is a little it easier.

I’ve got a really great mother’s day surprise coming  later this week, but it fits perfectly with this FREE download!  So go ahead and add these recipe cards into your mom’s gift this year, it doesn’t get better than free does it!?  I think these would go great into Style Me Pretty’s DIY Mother’s Day baskets!

Steps:

  • Download both .jpg files (front & back)
  • Print on high quality card stock.  Print the front first, then flip the page, place back in the printer, and print the back.  I suggest using regular printer paper until you figure out all of your printer’s quirks, I hate using good paper only for my printer to do something funky! Oh, and be sure the print scale is set to 100%, or else everything will get off whack!
  • Use a slide cutter to cut on the second black lines, leaving a frame as shown below!

  1. Thanks for these, they’re so pretty! LittleNickJonas was born on Mother’s Day! My husband’s b-day is May 13th, so sometimes his b-day is on Mother’s Day, as well. I love it when my son’s b-day falls on Mother’s Day, but when I share Mother’s Day with my husband it gets a little awkward, like who’s going to do the dishes? Happy Birthday!

    • Haha Jacqui, isn’t that why you have kids!? So you have someone to do the dishes and mow the lawn? Hope you guys have fun at the Chocolate Nugget. Hugs! -C
