Card | Hit The Books | Blackbird Darlin

I am such a sucker for anything with books on it. This patterned piece has been hanging in my stash for awhile, waiting for a project. Yay, used!

Besides cardstock for the base, this card is made out of only two patterned pieces, and a couple of strips from my handy Dymo labeler. I sat forever looking at it, thinking “uhhh, is this finished?” before I finally decided that…

YES. CRAFTING CAN BE THAT SIMPLE.

    Awesome card, Lisa, love how the two different wood grain papers look together! Did you see the Simon Says Stamp September card kit? It’s book themed and I couldn’t grab it fast enough! :)

    Super cute! I like simple. And your Dymo labeler has such a cool font – that lowercase is adorable!

    I always do that! I can look at a dang card for hours wondering if it’s finished. I’m impressed with your decisive nature. Love the card and I’m thinking I need one of those Dymos.
