A Toast to You at Eyelet Outlet

Eyelet Outlet has this adorable set of Bacon, Egg & Toast brads.  I used the eggs and bacon on a card I shared with you previously, but I just had to use this toast.  It looks so real…pass the butter, please!  Here’s the card I designed:

I decided on a pop-up easel card.  I’ve used this design in the past and really like the look.  I print and cut the Kitchy Kool digital patterned paper first and color matched it to the card stock.  In this case, I used Peekaboo Peach and Cucumber Crush as well as Whisper White for the focal image, greeting and sentiment.  I used my Scor-Pal to make the score lines.

To make the toaster, I used a cut file from the Silhouette store.  It was actually a card, but I shrunk it down and changed it to print only.  The center pattern also comes from the Kitchy Kool kit.  After printing it, I attached the toast brads so that they appear to be popping out of the toaster.

The greeting and sentiment were color matched to the dark red in the patterned paper.  Inside, I added another slice of toast in the very center and then used my Scor-Pal again to emboss the bottom to resemble the pattern in the circles.  It’s understated, but just the right touch!

Here’s another look at the card, closed and ready for mailing.  You can also see the Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine I wrapped around the panel.
