Another new release at Eyelet Outlet are the Duck/Goose Brads

I had to do a bit of thinking about how I wanted to use it; but when I settled on an idea, I was tickled with it.  Here’s my card:

Goose'd wm 1

I made the card using a file purchased in the Silhouette store…it’s the pocket I was after.  I printed the pocket using a digital patterned paper from the Adorableness kit by Traci Reed.  After I print and cut the pocket, I color matched the card stock; Crushed Curry for the base, Melon Mambo and Island Indigo for the mats and Very Vanilla for the focal image, the pocket insert and the sentiment mat inside.

The adorable Goose is the centerpiece of the card, but those Blue Pearl Bling sure do command attention, too!  I added a touch of ribbon to the top of the tag to finish it off.

Goose'd wm 2

You pull out the tag and…

Goose'd wm 4

…were you expecting that? LOL  I’m hoping it made you smile!

Inside I though I’d expand on the goose theme with the sentiment on a panel of Very Vanilla, matted on the same card stock as the front. 

Goose'd wm 5

I have another idea for the additional geese I have in my stash, so stay tuned for another card using these in the future.   In the meantime, I’ll see you soon with another project!

      After I made the card, I went to link to it in the store and discovered it was actually a duck, LOL It looked like a goose to me!

I'd love to hear from you. I so appreciate your comments!
