"For the Record" Owl Card

Hi fellow paper crafters, it's Carissa from

Today I'd like to share this sweet owl card I made using the Echo Park "For the Record" line. I just love this paper. It is really versatile! Some papers look country chic with awesome pops of color. And some papers look very vintage. I love mixing the two papers from a country vintage look. Love it!

This owl frame is from the Storybook Cricut cartridge. Isn't he so sweet. I welded the scallop shape together using my Gypsy to make this shape card. I cut the beak to add some more pop to his face. Shading black chalk ink around the edges for more depth.

Here are some of the supplies I got from Shop Pumpkin Spice.

Echo Park "For the Record" $0.55 per sheet

Portrait Eclectic Flea Market buttons $3.50

Other Supplies:
Cricut cartridge : Storybook
Twine : Lime Twist twine colored black with permanent market
Ink : Color Box chalk ink black
Stamps : Papertrey Ink
Rhinestones : from my stash

I am just loving this paper!! I can't stop using it for all my projects.

Carissa, i have had my eye on Storybook for a while; I think you may have pushed me over the edge ;)

I love your paper combo…the color red and polka dots make me happy. Add in scallops and owls and it's all YUM!
