Only Young Once

by onepaperstreet

Lately I’ve been trying to explore crafting without my Cricut Machine. I use my Cricut for so many projects, and it really has been wonderful. But I don’t want to use it so frequently, that I forget to use my other tools too. My favorite part of this card was playing around with my Ranger Perfect Pearls. This is a very fine textured and highly pigmented colored powder that will make any crafting or DIY project pop. You can use it with the Ranger Perfect Medium stamping pad and brushes that it comes with.

This card features an image of an older woman sitting on a child’s mechanical horse ride, just enjoying life. The sentiment reads “You’re only young once, but you can be immature for a lifetime. Around it are two banners and a border to give it a little extra color. In hindsight, I wish I would have rounded the two bottom edges to take away some of the empty space near those corners, but all things considered, I’m still happy with my work.
