Cream Cheese Potato Soup Recipe Card

While finishing up this post Thanksgiving evening, I know that soup is about the last thing on our minds right now. But here goes! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I haven't posted a recipe card forever, have I? I came across this recipe in a cookbook that I recently purchased at my scrapbooking retreat. The proceeds went to charity so I couldn't pass it up. I recalled my brother talking about a recipe that he raved over that had cream cheese and ham in it. I found the recipe in this cookbook so I had to try it. It's a keeper! We all loved the soup, especially now that the weather is getting colder outside. To create my 4" x 6" recipe card, I typed my recipe and printed it off onto cardstock. See left side bar for fonts, please, just scroll down. For my main *soups and stews* label, I used JustRite's Recipes Borders and Centers stamp set. I cut out the small circle using a Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities die template. I layered that onto a Spellbinders Pinking Circle Nestabilities die template in brown.

I then used patterns from October Afternoon to punch 1" squares of various papers. I adhered them to my recipe card then stitched around three sides of the card. I pinked the edges of the snippets of patterned paper that peek off the top of the recipe card.
To finish my recipe card, I used more October Afternoon paper and sticker strip of flowers. Machine stitching is along the sides and under the recipe title for some graphic line detailing.
I really love making these recipe cards. Hope you enjoy them too! Oh, and try the soup! If you want a cheesy taste, add a big chunk of Velveeta. At our house, it's real cheese. ;)

Thanks for the recipe Michelle! It sounds yummy just as it is with the cream cheese. There are no calories in this version, right? I tried to get that Becky font you had marked down, but the link must be flawed because I can't get to the site. It just says "page not found".

Lovely recipe card! And I can vouch for this recipe. I've never tried it with velvetta, but make it just like the recipe says. The dill is so yummy in this recipe. I make it on Christmas Eve as well as other times thru out the winter season.
