I chose a beautiful image from Flourishes' Dreaming of Florence stamp set and made a recipe card to go with a gift of wine.
I stamped on Canson watercolor paper using VersaFine ink, and then watercolored my image using dye inks and a watercolor brush. I stamped my sentiment from the same set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The pearl flourishes are Zva Creative CRX-05CB-131 and CRX-05CB-110. Everything is adhered with ISP tape and Zva Creative Adhesive Dimensionals. The lace trim is Ivory Crochet Lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I love making easy recipes around the holiday times (and any time!) for dinner, and my crockpot is such a timesaver when I am working and wanting something delicious! So I am sharing one of my favorite chicken recipes.
Inside my card is this printed recipe:
CROCK POT RED WINE CHICKEN
- 4 to 5 chicken breasts & thighs
- 8 bacon slices, diced
- 1 1/2 cups sliced green onions
- 8 small white onions peeled
- 16 small new potatoes, scrubbed, or 1 to 1 1/2 pound, quartered
- 8 ounces small whole mushrooms
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup dry red wine
