Be a Good One at Eyelet Outlet

I love so many of the brads, eyelets, and washi at Eyelet Outlet, it becomes a difficult choice when deciding what I want to use on my next card.  I couldn’t wait to use these Eggs, so that’s what I’m working with today in my card that offers some good advice:

The package includes 12 eggs, 6 brown and 6 white.  I’m working with just the brown eggs today, so I needed two packs to make a dozen.  But I have plans for the white eggs in future cards; so stay tuned.

I knew I wanted to have a carton of a dozen eggs on the front, but I couldn’t find a cut file for an egg carton anywhere; so I made one!  It took me way too long to do; but once I have my mind set on something, nothing else will do.  I have a template for it on the Hints, Tips & Tutorials page (under templates & tutorials) should you want to make one for your Eyelet Outlet Eggs!  I love how it turned out and I’m now thinking of how I can use it on another card!  Maybe something with cooking!  Here’s a closer look:

I have no idea where I got this digital patterned paper.  It has been on my computer for a long time and this card seemed like the perfect reason to use it.  I print and cut it and then used it to select the coordinating card stock; Garden Green, Peach Parfait and Really Rust with Whisper White for printed pieces. 

I embossed the patterned paper with the Chicken Wire embossing folder, which was just the thing the paper needed.

At the bottom I placed a little banner with one of the companion pieces to the paper and topped it off with Glitter Enamel Dots and, inside, I used the eggs from the Bacon, Egg & Toast Brads in the perfect sentiment. 

After I added the patterned paper, the card still seemed bland.  Embossing the entire card base with the same embossing folder…better!  The right-hand side was still too plain, so I added another companion piece.  I simply enlarged the pattern and cut out a single chicken for the front and another for the inside.

Here’s a closer look at the sentiment.  Those sunny-side-up eggs worked perfectly.

I hope you liked my card.  I’ll be working with eggs again soon, so stay tuned.  In the meantime, if you want to take a peek at another I made a while back with the Colored Egg Brads, you can find it here.

    This is such a cute card! I have a neighbor who gives me eggs. What a cute idea to use as a “thank you.” I have spent much money at Eyelet Outlet because of your wonderful inspiration! Thank you.

      Oh my gosh, that would be a great idea! It’s a shameless promotion of this card on my part because it is one of my very favorites. The template is available here and on EO.

    Such a cute idea and perfect for my niece who raises chickens and keeps us supplied with wonderful fresh eggs.
