We are always on the lookout for good recipe cards, so when reader Elizabeth sent us these cards that she and her husband designed, we were excited. They are almost exactly what we are looking for in a recipe card!

They are simple, classic, and modern (no cutesy clip art) but the real strength of these recipe cards is that they're flexible. Elizabeth explains:

One of our main considerations for this design was to make it as flexible a format as possible. I know a lot of my family recipes are written more in paragraph form, and others don't have specifics like servings, etc. We wanted to make sure our design could accommodate for these kind of factors. We designed them in both 3x5 and 4x6 sizes after a quick survey of friends told us that people still use both sizes, and use them each pretty exclusively.

We really like how there is a clear space to write a title, and notes, and there is a light grid for those of us who can't write in a straight line, but overall they are open and flexible for writing a recipe in any way you want. Very nicely done!
