For this card all the pattern paper is from the Recollections Signature Graceful Paper Pad. I really love the patterns. I got this paper pad, because I loved the ledger patterns, glitter accents, beautiful colors, and distressed touches. I’ve already made several beautiful cards with this paper pad. I am working on several cards with quotes, so the ledger patterns are the prefect background for quotes. My one complaint about this card stock is it is much thinner than I am use to. I had a hard time getting the setting right on my cricut, to get clean cuts. I ended up using low pressure, low speed, blade at one, and used 4 multicut to get good cuts. To make this card, I started with a kraft A2 card base. I cut a circle border from Give a Hoot at 1 inch, and glued that down. Then I attached a thin yellow strip of paper to the cicle border and made some dash lines. I cut the retangle charm at 1 1/2 inches a couple of times. Then I glued those layers together to make a thicker tag. I wrote my sentiment with a brown Zig Calligraphy Pen,
Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake. ~Henry David Thoreau
Then I used some hemp to attached the tag to the top portion of the card. The cute little owl was cut at 3 inches and then attached with pop dots. For finishing touches, I punched a couple flowers and attached them with brads and then corner rounded the edges. I hope you like this card.
