I never seem to have enough recipe cards. I know lots of people keep their recipes housed online for easy organized access or at the very least, they have digital copies of them. I have document folders full of them too, but I think there is something special about having an old fashioned handwritten recipe card. A couple of years ago, I began writing out my favorite recipes on cards. Maybe one day a grandchild or even a great grandchild will find them and feel a sense of connection to the past. Or, maybe not; they might find their way into a discard pile long before that. I’ll continue to write out my favorites regardless of where the cards might end up in the future.
I was about to write out a couple of new favorites and realized I didn’t have any more cards. I know I have some card stock on hand, so I thought it would be a good time to try to create one myself.
I used PicMonkey to make mine. I started with the Design Tab and chose 4 x 6 size. I rotated it clockwise and added text using a candy cane font from the “use your own” tab. I chose the Winterland theme and selected the holly. It’s easy to position and reposition until you’re pleased with the layout. Then I added a boarder, saved it and then converted it to a PDF using PDF Converter.
PicMonkey is very user friendly!
If you’d like to print my holly and candy cane card, I’ve uploaded a printable version.
