Strawberry cake - hmmm yummy

I visited Dawn 's blog the other day and noticed there that she is a Design Team Member for
papertakeweekly. So i go and check this site out and what must i say - i love it!!! Than was hopping over to Sandys blog and i noticed her link for the artysgirlschallangeblog. They have a challange posted were i could combine the two challanges in one card. so here is the outcome:
I have a aunt who lives since she was 18 years old in Texas and she still misses German cakes. So i made her this card with a Strawberry cake recipie i like. On the inner left side is the recipie adhered and on the middle part is still enough space to leave a personal note. Now the cool thing about this style card is, that it is perforated. So she can take the recipie part off the entire card and keep it in her recipie box without having all the bulk of the rest of the card.

Meine Tante wohnt nun schon seit sie 18 Jahre alt ist in Texas und sie vermisst immer noch die gute Deutsche Baeckerei. Viele von diesen Backzutaten sind sehr schwer in den USA zu erhalten. Wir tauschen seit langem Rezepte aus. Sie schickt mir welche von ihren orginal mexikanischen Rezepten und ich meine Lieblingssachen. Das tolle an dieser Karte ist, dass der Vordereteil leicht abzutrennen ist. Ich habe die Faltung mit einem Perforationstool durchstochen und wenn sie die Karte glesen hat, kann sie einfach den Vorderteil abtrennen und in ihre Rezeptebox reinlegen ohne die ganze Karte aufheben zu muessen.To perforate the front - so you can take it easy off - i used this nifty tool (shown in the pic) from EK Success.
Zutaten:
CS: White, Cool Carr. Real Red, DP, Black
Tools: Cuttlebug, EK perforator, Stampin up Tab Punch, Nestabilities
Stamp: Ellen Hutson Stawberry image recieved through RAK

This is an other card i made last year, same system using a set from Stampin up.
Card Instructions:
11 x 4.25
scored at 1.5 on one end and perforated on the other side at 4 inch
