Yesterday I promised another project with Spellbinders Eyelet Squares.
While I was in the middle of working on the holiday card, tags and gift bag that I showed yesterday, I needed to make a sympathy card. Another idea for Eyelet Squares! I had them out already. Why not?

Here's the card I created......


It's a little harder to pick out the Eyelet Square on this card. I've weaved seam binding through the holes. Do you see it now? I love how this turned out!
I started with the verse and a plan to cut an oval out of the largest Eyelet Squares die template. The one die template I didn't use yesterday! I stamped the verse with Espresso ink and clear embossed it. I added a touch of Copic G20 to the leaves. I chose a piece of Graphic 45 Daydreams paper from Le' Romatique Collection and matched a green Bazzill to it. I cut the Eyelet Squares #4 and Classic Ovals LG #3 centered at the same time. I then embossed it over Flourish Impressabilities with both die templates in place. I cut a tiny oval frame by first cutting Classic Ovals LG #4. Then I centered Classic Ovals SM #4 on that oval to cut out the center. I glued it in place around my oval opening. I rubbed Bundled Sage Distress ink over the embossed areas and oval frame. Then I glued the verse in place behind the oval opening. Next I cut out Labels Sixteen #6 from Bazzill dark brown paper. I used Labels Fifteen # 5 to cut out the center creating a frame. I glue it in place on the Eyelet Square. I weaved seam binding in and out of the holes and fastened the ends in back.
For the card front, I cut Grand Labels One #3 out of Graphic 45 Daydreams paper. This I fastened to the front of a square 5 3/8" ivory card. I adhered the Eyelet Square piece to the center with Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I added a touch of antique color to pearls from Hero Arts with Copic E51. Then I placed one in each corner and half way between. I added tiny pearls (AMuse) on swirls above and below the verse.

This card design would work just as well with another JustRite oval verse. Make it a birthday card or thinking of you! I love how the seam binding looks weaved into the Eyelet Square holes and the dark brown frame really sets it off.

Thanks for stopping!
Thank you to everyone who commented yesterday! I've read each and every one! Over 700! Wow! You inspire me!

Happy Blog Hoppin'!

Hello,
When I design custom invitations, I offer to design custom postage for my clients to complete the look of their invitation package. The party starts when the guests open their invitations, so setting the tone of the party with the invitation is important. But even before the envelope is opened, the first impression the guest has of the invitation is what’s on the outside.
