Deb's Recipe of the Month Club - May

Just squeaking under the wire with the May issue of DEB'S RECIPE OF THE MONTH!! This is an old family favorite recipe. Something my mom made for my sister and I as a special treat - "RED HOT JELLO". We'd all fight over the last bite.

Why the "Valentine's Day" treatment? Simple - my mom always made/makes this recipe in a heart-shaped mold. I used a lot of Nesties and punches on this - the only thing that is stamped is the label. I love the concept of the Just Rite stamps - the ability to create custom word borders or tags. But I struggle every time to get a clean stamp. There's always a edge or incomplete stamp on the letters. And the miniature letter blocks are an exercise in patience and steady hands! But this small 1 5/8" size works well. maybe there's not as much surface area.

Paper: Amuse check, SU! Real Red
Ink: SU! Real Red
Accessories: Stampin Up! Bird punch, Nesties

    Great card and great recipe. I had misplaced my recipe, so I'm glad to find it again.

  2. what an interesting recipe, I've never heard of anything like it. I don't like red hots so I doubt I would like this but maybe my family?! And your recipe card is beautiful, as always!

  3. Pretty; the jello sounds good too! I have heard of this, but never have tried it....

  4. How fun is that?! My girls would love this recipe; I'm having fun admiring your recipe card!!
