Recipe Card Challenge ~ July 2013

Here are the instructions for this month's recipe card challenge/exchange:

1. Click HERE for this month's recipe card challenge kit. The majority of your card(s) must be made with this kit, although you can also use other CU items to enhance your cards (for example, brushes, actions, etc.). NOTE: A coupon code will be provided to those who used the prior month's kit to create and share at least one recipe card in the previous month’s challenge.

2. The general theme for this month's cards is your favorite recipe using ingredients that are red, white, or blue ~ the post below this one includes more information. Be creative and have fun designing your cards!

3. Create your recipe card(s) at 6" wide x 4" tall (1800 and 1200 pixels), 300 ppi resolution. These are the print-quality cards that will be shared with all participants. When finished, save as a jpeg file with quality between 8-10. Carefully proofread and make needed changes before finalizing.

4. You will also need to resize and save your card(s) at 72 ppi to post in the gallery.

WHEN FINISHED with your card(s), you must do the following 3 things:

1. E-mail your print-quality, 300 ppi recipe card to so it can be included in the download file at the end of the month. Do not share your print-quality card on your blogs or through any other means without my prior approval. Several participants have also asked for blank copies of the cards you design, so if you're willing to send me both (with and without the words), that would be great!

2. Upload a picture of your 72 ppi card to the Recipe Card Challenge Gallery. Please upload only your actual recipe card ~ not the blank cards. You may also post a copy of your 72 ppi (web version) on your blog if you’d like, and then include a link to the forum in case others are interested and want to participate.

3. Post a message here in this forum thread with a link to your gallery card no later than July 31.

At the end of the month, all participants will receive a link to download all the cards created that month. Bon appétit!!

NOTE: A checklist of instructions is included in the store kit for your convenience.

Hi, friends. I had a totally different starter kit ready to go for this month, but everywhere I turned it seemed I was seeing “red, white, and blue” recipes – so I decided to set the other kit aside for a future month and pull this one together.

For this month’s challenge, let’s focus on any type of recipe that includes an ingredient that is red, white, or blue – whatever you’d like to go along with this theme. This may be a salad, drink, dessert, appetizer – whatever you’d like. I can’t wait to see the gallery fill up with your creative cards and delicious recipes! : )

The tags in this month’s kit are really more a description of the theme instead of the recipe type. If you need a tag for your recipe and don’t already have it from a previous kit, send me an e-mail and I’ll try to get one made for you.

June participants: I’ll send you an e-mail with a coupon code for this month’s kit no later than July 6. If you haven’t sent me your June cards, please do so as soon as possible.

As a general rule, I will share the print-quality version (300 ppi) of the cards you create for this challenge with the other participants; they are not to be given away/shared via a download link on your blogs or through any other means. Feel free to post a picture of the web version (72 ppi) of your card on your blog. If you want, you can also include a link to the forum so others can join in and participate. Please let me know if you have any questions about this explanation or my Terms Of Use (TOU) document.

This month's kit is adorable . . . as usual. The kids holding the rocket pops took me back to my childhood when we would make these frozen treats. Here's the recipe for Rocket Pops.

I really like this month's kit and theme. I decided to create a second recipe card.
