we can’t direct the wind Note Card

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! We’re sure enjoying some cooler weather out here in Colorado and that makes us happy! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a cool inspirational note card with a nautical feel featuring our Anchor Brads, Ship Wheel Brads, Anchor Washi Tape and Black Enamel Dots! These brads and washi tape are the the bomb – I love using coordinating products!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock. I covered just a tad more than half of the white panel with Anchor Washi Tape, cut it off at an angle and adhered it to the brown panel, and added a narrow white cardstock strip at the angled edge. I stamped the sentiment in gold ink and then brown ink over top of the gold for a pretty brown shimmer. I cut the sentiment with a stitched circle die and adhered it to the panel. I added randomly-placed Anchor Brads and Ship Wheel Brads, and adhered the panel to the card base. I then added a few Black Enamel Dots to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of Anchor Washi Tape and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock, and layered the panel on the brown cardstock. Since this is a note card, I left the inside panel blank, leaving plenty of room to write a custom message.

And one more look… I absolutely love how this turned out! A true nautical feel with these amazing brads and washi tape!

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
