Here's the blogs for Day Two:
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.
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!
