'Do What You Love' card created using
CTMH August SOTM: For The Love Of Crafting
and CTMH Documented Paper Pack
I have so many ideas for the beautiful papers in this Documented Paper Pack. This card is my first post using Documented papers, but I'm sure to add more throughout this month. If you'd like to be notified, you can either follow me here or on Instagram at: gladeslibrarian.

To make this card, I began with a white card base. I stamped the typewriter on linen-colored paper using Archival Black because it reminds me of the old-time typewriters that I love. I used our White Daisy pigment ink to stamp the 'Do what you love' heart on the saffron-colored pocket card. I trimmed the eggplant-colored paper to 4.5" x 2.5" and the linen-colored paper to 4.5" x 3" so the entire card front would be covered. I trimmed the saffron-colored pocket card to 3-7/8" x 2-3/4". I saved the trimmed part to add near the bottom of the card just above the 1/2" charcoal-colored zip strip. I finished it off with some Documented Dots to direct the eye from one phrase to another across the card. Did you notice the path? If you need further directions on putting this card together, I'd be happy to assist.
