Hi everyone! It’s the last Saturday in August – can you believe it?! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a set of sparkly ATCs for your viewing pleasure that feature some amazing Eyelet Outlet products! As you already know, I’m an ATC addict and I love creating both cards and coins!
I created one coin and two cards. My standard practice is to always punch two circles or cut two rectangles so that I can decorate one and adhere another one behind it for stability. To create the ‘Joy’ coin, I placed a strip of Glitter Tall Tree Washi Tape horizontally across the coin base and added three Penguin Brads and the sentiment die cut from silver foil cardstock. Then I adhered a second punched circle behind it.
To create the ‘peace’ card, I covered the card base with Wood Washi Tape and then die cut the sentiment into the covered card base, saving those tiny negative space pieces to add back in later. I added three Prancing Deer Brads and just prior to adhering the second rectangle behind it, I added two small strips of Glitter Brown Washi Tape to the front of the extra card so the sparkle would show through the die cut sentiment. Once I adhered the second rectangle, I glued in the negative space pieces to the p, e, a and the second e.
To create the ‘merry’ card, I covered the card base with Glitter Gold Dots Washi Tape and added the sentiment die cut from red cardstock along with a thin red cardstock strip across the bottom. I adhered the stamped word Christmas and then added one Cardinal Brad and two Cardinal Profile Brads. Then I adhered a second rectangle behind it.
And one more look at the set… I’m SO loving these! I have to say that I’m in HOG HEAVEN creating with all these awesome Eyelet Outlet products!
