I love the cool colours (and chocolate content!) of this card.
For this one print:-

The polka dot (mint) sheet onto quality white paper

An A5 card blank has been used here. As with the other cards, if you don't have a pale ivory card blank you can print your own by using the plain ivory sheet that's in the set.
Using a craft knife and ruler, cut out a recipe card (with ivory border) and an oven-glove square and kitchen tools rectangle motif from the Kitchen Minis 4 sheet. You don't have to do this if you hate fiddly cutting but I have also cut out the matching-sized kitchen tools and mini oven glove with small scissors and have done a simple decoupage with these onto the motifs. If you hate the fiddly cutting, just leave them as they are!
Stick the recipe card to the card blank with sticky pads to that the bottom is just under 2.5cm from the bottom of the card blank.
Add the oven glove motif with sticky pads so that it's level with the recipe card and the kitchen tools motif so that it's half a centimetre below the recipe card (to accomodate the ribbon and bow).
For the little recipe book, cut out a cover and around 4-5 of the mini recipes with a craft knife and ruler. Add 3mm tape to the left hand side of each page and make a little stack of pages, finishing by adding the stack to the recipe book cover and folding it over. If you don't have 3mm tape, cut a strip to this size from 6mm or 12mm tape.
Stick the recipe book between the oven glove and kitchen utensil motif with further double-sided tape.
To finish the card, add narrow satin ribbon 1cm from the bottom with thin double-sided tape and add a ribbon bow made from the same ribbon with strong tacky glue.
