My dad requested I make him some greeting cards, so this is one of the ones I made for him. It is a simple card, but wasn’t simple to make. I started with A2 size card in craft card stock. Then I layered a piece of patterned paper from the ancestry.com stack on top a piece of Bazzill Bitter Chocolate. Then I placed eyelets in each corner, and attached s0me brown ribbon before I taped the layer on the card base. After it was attached, I tied a ribbon bow. The books are from the Cricut Hello Kitty Greetings Cartridge. I cut the apple off the top of the books with my paper trimmer. The based of the books is brown recollections paper that I inked up with Victorian Velvet and Vintage Photo. The brown  books are Bazzill Bitter Chocolate and Brown. The red book is recollectionccards stock that I inked up with Victorian Velvet and Vintage Photo.  After the books were assembled, I used pop dots to attach them to the card base.  I place a black pearl in the book corner. The sentiment was stamped using Martha Stewart Clear Stamps Sans Serif Typeface.  I just got these stamps, and love how easily and clearly they stamp. I stamped ‘read’ on a piece of card stock that punched out from the ancestry.com embossed frames. I attached the sentiment with two brads that I colored black. I really love how this card came out, and that I was able to make a masculine card with such a girly cartridge.

The koala from Create a Critter is adorable. If he wasn’t made of paper I would hug him. I’m not sure where I got the patterned paper from for the Koala. I am trying to use up my scraps. The scallop was cut from create a critter and the paper is from Garden Party Stack. I pop doted up the blue circle and the koala. Hope you enjoy this card.

Even though this card is simple I love it. I almost don’t want to give it away. The butterfly paper is from DCWV Garden Party. I used a Tim Holtz Rubber Cling stamp, and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The brown ribbon is American Crafts. The corners were round with a punch. Get inspired.

Turtle-ly Awesome!

Turtle-ly Awesome!

 


This cute turtle card has cute turtle pun, and can be used for many different occasions. I am using this little guy as a thank you card for my brother-in-law, who loves turtles.  The turtle was cut at 2 inches, and the patterned paper used for his body is from DCWV Garden Party.  I used a piece of paper from DCWC The Green Stack for the background. I love this new paper stack. The designs are super cute, the paper is 70% recycled, and it has a really cool texture. I think this paper stack with go well with the Give a Hoot Cricut Cartridge. The brown tag is from the DCWV Garden Party punch outs. The rest is pretty self explanatory. Hope you enjoy this card.
