Easy 15 Minute Earth Day Greeting Card With Paper Scraps How To

Hello Crafty Folks!
Welcome to the Chattering Robin's blog.

Michelle here today to share a very quick & easy 
way to make a simple layered card,
using gorgeous Patterned Paper & and Dew Drops
from The Robin's Nest.

I wanted to create a card with a "natural" type feel,
in celebration of Earth Day.



For the card base, I chose a heavy weight
parchment cardstock, and cut the design with my 
Cricut Explore Air 2, choosing a rounded edge and 
measurement of 6x6 in size.
(Don't know why, but I LOVE square shaped cards)


I then used a recycled "craft paper" type cardstock
to  create a large inner square, and then 
cut a slightly smaller square using
Red Plain Linen Cardstock.

I chose two cards from the Leafy Green Cards collection, 
for the decorative & sentiment on the card front.
I mounted them on background squares, cut from the 
Brown Herringbone Cardstock, using double sided foam squares.

To put the cardstock layers together, I used 
double sided tape.
Once all was in place, I addedGreen Dew Drops
from the Getaway Collection to add a subtle "flair" 
to the card front using the Best Glue Ever & Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect.

I also used the Best Glue Ever to secure the Natural Twine
to the top of the card as well as a band across the center.
