You’re great to have around in a pinch!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday – can’t believe we’re a little more than a week into October! I’m thrilled to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun thank you card featuring some of our new brads in the store paired with skinny ‘metal’ Washi Tape and enamel dots! Another super simple design… I’m really ‘getting into’ these, lol!

I cut a standard A2 sized top-fold white card base and a slightly smaller black cardstock layer. I created a background panel using two coordinating patterns from one of my favorite paper pads which complimented the colors of the brads nicely. I created the sentiment on the computer, printed and trimmed it, and adhered it in the center of the background panel. I added a strip of Skinny Washi Tape Copper at the top and bottom of the sentiment strip, added some Crab & Lobster Brads and adhered the panel on the black cardstock layer. I adhered the panel to the card base, and the final touch was adding a few Black Enamel Dots

I embellished the inside panel with a strip of the gingham paper used on the front and a narrow strip of black cardstock, added a die cut sentiment, and layered the panel on black cardstock.

One more peek… loving how this turned out! Those brads are so awesome!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
