Eyelet Borders


Eyelet Borders

Today’s card is clean and simple (CAS) featuring layered eyelet borders.  The base of the card is made from  Always Artichoke.  Next comes the layers of the To the Nines DPS.  The large paisley print is cut at ¾ x 4 inches (on the left) and 3 x 4 inches (on the right).  The smaller print in the center is cut at 1¼ x 4 inches. 

Next is a 2¼ x 5 strip of Very Vanilla cut on both edges with the eyelet border punch.  Layer with a strip of Always Artichoke cut at 1¾ x 5 also edged with the eyelet border punch.  (See below for a tip on using border punches).  Use a small amount of adhesive to connect the layers and mount the unit onto the card.  Wrap with Very Vanilla ⁵⁄₈” grosgrain ribbon and tie a simple knot. 

The sentiment from the Oval All set was stamped on Very Vanilla with Always Artichoke.  Next, rub the back of the image with waxed paper and use the Punches Plus Classy Brass Stencil oval with a light box to emboss the image for a subtle enhancement.  Punch a scrap of Always Artichoke using the Oval Scallop Punch and mount the sentiment.  Use Dimensionals to adhere to the card.
