Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe Card

Mmmm - Lemon Meringue Pie! My favourite! Yes, I know it's sugary, but I also know I'm not alone in loving it:

" I'm a sweet eater.
I love lemon pie and sweet potato pie".

Made for an UNhealthy Recipe Card Swap!

When I was asked to think of an UNhealthy recipe to make into cards for a scrapbooking swap, I immediately thought of lemon meringue pie. It always brings back thoughts of my childhood when I bite into its flaky pastry with the sweet and sour filling, topped by fluffy, snowy whiteness.

Yum!

Another advantage of this swap is that I cooked the recipe itself so I could take some pictures of it for my cards. We had pie for desert that night cos you can't let it go to waste!

How to Make a Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe Card


Here's What I Used to Make the Cards:

  • Shades of Yellow and caramel coloured cardstock
  • Designer series paper with pictures of recipes and ingredients on it
  • Pictures of the baked item
  • The recipe printed on lined note paper
  • A variety of paper punches: a note paper punch, a heart punch with two sizes of hearts, a scallop punch and a corner rounder punch
  • Yellow and caramel coloured ink pads
  • Copper and gold metallic pens
  • Double sided tape, paper trimmer, ruler
  • Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Ribbon

Here's What I Did:

  • Cut out the cards - here I used 5" x 7" (12.7 x 17.8cm or thereabouts) cards
  • Cut out all elements I intend to use on the cards and round off the corners with the corner rounder punch where desired
  • Punch the sides of some elements to make them look like note paper with the note paper punch
  • Ink the edges of the elements as desired

  • Tear the edges of the recipe sections and ink them

  • Attach double-sided tape to the lengths of ribbon and adhere it to the background designer series paper. I did not wrap the ribbon around the patterned paper as I wanted the picture of the pie to stand out and have a stable surface to balance on

  • Apply Stampin' Dimensionals to your matted photo and place over the ribbon on the designer series paper (the ribbon will help to support the picture)

  • Attach the filling and meringue recipe to the front at the right of your pie picture
  • Turn the card over and decorate the back with a pie crust recipe
  • Punch out your hearts and decorate the top one (smaller one) with gold pen
  • Attach strips of designer series paper (edge it with ink first and draw a line of copper metallic pen down the centre of one) and ribbon as desired
  • Adhere the heart embellishment over the paper strips and ribbon I chose to sign my cards with my swap name.
