Handmade Heart Inside Circle Card

 

 

 

 

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. —Martin Luther King Jr., civil rights leader

This pretty card was inspired by a sketch on Iwona Palamountain’s blog. All the beautiful paper from this card are from the K & Company Geo Floral stack. Both the circle and the scallop circle are cut from Birthday Bash. The Heart and scalop edge are cut from Give a Hoot. The scallop edge is actually just a circle border layered underneath the green rectangle layer. For the tag I cut out a rectangle. Than chopped off one corner with my paper trimmer. Then I glued the corner to opposite side and then trimmed it off. Then I added a eyelet for the hole. I wrote the sentiment with a black sharpie pen. Thanks for visiting.

I am still working on cards for my aunt with her favorite quotes. Last week with my 50% of coupon, I got a new paper stack, K & Company Geo Floral Specialty stack. I think this stack might be exclusive to Michael’s, because I can’t find it anywhere else. I am so in love this stack. It has vibrant colors, beautiful floral patterns, and fun geometric patterns. All the buttons,  I used in these cards are thrift store finds. I hope everyone enjoys these new cards.

Owl Card

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.
