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.
