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.
