Hi everyone! OMGosh, the weather here is absolutely gorgeous! Three of our cats ninja’d their way out the front door yesterday (they are all inside cats) just so they could enjoy the beautiful weather on the loose, I’m sure! Luckily, they didn’t stay out long. They do have a backyard catio that Ed built several years ago, so they get to go out whenever they want! Darn kids! ;) Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a Christmas card (see, I’m still in that mode…) using some awesome brads, washi tape and my favorite enamel dots!

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from Neenah Classic Linen 100# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel for the front from Neenah Classic Linen 80# Solar White cardstock. I die cut the Alpines from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock (snow caps) and an assortment of papers from the Core’dinations Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection, and inked the edges of the pieces with pumice stone distress ink before assembling them. I added two Moose Brads and adhered the Alpines to the linen layering panel. I added two angled strips of Copper Skinny Washi Tape, adhered the panel to a piece of white craft foam and then adhered the piece to the card base. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink, cut it with a stitched oval die and layered it on a slightly larger green die cut, and adhered it to the background panel. The finishing touch was the addition of several White Enamel Dots.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with leftover strips of the Core’dinations Kraft-Core used on the front, stamped the sentiment in brown ink and layered the panel on more of the Core’dinations Kraft-Core.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! These brads are so fun!

Hi everyone! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! They sure do go by fast, don’t they?! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Our February challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #31 – February Anything Christmas Goes! I created a fun split panel card with acetate and used a Clearly Besotted stamp set that I won last year. This is the first time I’ve used it and it’s so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it!

I created a standard A2 size top folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and cut a portion out of it with a MFT Stitched Scallop Basic Edges die. I cut two thin borders from the leftover piece of cardstock, colored them red and set them aside. I cut a panel of acetate and adhered it behind the two pieces of cardstock to form the front flap.

I adhered the red borders and stamped the sentiment in black ink in the bottom right corner. I stamped ‘xo’ randomly over the top of the flap in two shades of green ink and adhered tiny iridescent gemstones randomly to fill in spaces.

I stamped the darling little moose on the inside, centering it between the two cardstock pieces, and then stamped the sentiment directly above it. I colored the moose with alcohol markers and that completed the card!

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! This is such a fun technique!
