For All You Do at Eyelet Outlet

A warm welcome to craftswithheart (love that name) as my newest e-mail subscriber.  Thanks so much for joining us!

I’m sharing an Eyelet Outlet project with you today.  I’m using a product with which I haven’t had much experience, the Solid Colored Paper Flowers.   I thoroughly enjoyed working with them and can’t wait to try again on another project. 

For my card today, I used the White and Light Pink flower packs.  They come in packs of 40 in three different sizes.   For the flower centers, I used the Amber 10mm Silver Edged Brads

These flowers stand out beautifully against the turquoise blue of this card-in-a-box “mason jar”.   Mason Jars remind me of homespun goodness; so I thought it was a perfect backdrop for this Mother’s Day card.

To create the base,  I started with a cut file by Lori Whitlock.  I changed the inserts slightly to accommodate the flowers I would be using.  I used a combination of card stocks from DCWV and Stampin’ Up.  All the edges were sponged for depth and dimension.

I sponged the flowers to add a little depth to them.  Yellow in the centers of all and pink on the outer edges of the pink flowers…the ridges in the paper flowers take the color beautifully.  I used the medium and small flowers to make white flower in the back and the large and medium on the pink flower in the foreground . 

I wanted small flowers to accent, so I tried using a punch on the petals of the largest flower.  They cut beautifully!  I didn’t have small, single rhinestones for the centers of the small flowers, so I cut a few from the Clear Swirl Bling after coloring them with a Copic marker to match the larger stones.   Here’s a closer look at the flowers:

For the sentiment, I made something very simple using the Alex Brush font in gray to match the lid.

    Cute card. I have been trying to sponge more of my die cuts because yours always look so great just like this one.

      I thank you! I know I sound like a broken record when I keep saying sponging makes a difference…but it does! 😉

  2. How adorable! I have the purple pack of these same flowers. I love the Mason jar idea!
