Sleighin’ It With Eyelet Outlet

I’m still having fun working with the new brads in the Eyelet Outlet store.  I particularly like the selection in this release.  Then again, I particularly liked the previous release…and will undoubtedly like the next release.  Okay, I confess.  I love ’em all!  If you haven’t caught the new releases yet, what are you waiting for?  Here’s the link to the new brads AND there’s new washi tape in the store, too.  Here’s a link to that.   

Today I’m working with the Sled and Pine Tree Brads as well as the Sun (and Cloud) Brads to create my little “Sleighin’ It” scene.

I thought a Standing Pop-Up Card would be a perfect way to showcase these brads and I’m happy with the result.  If you’ve never made one before, there’s a template for you on the Hints, Tips & Tutorials page.  It’s not difficult even though it has a “wow” factor to it.

To create the hills, I simply freehand cut three separate pieces of Whisper White cardstock.  I attached them to some Bashful Blue cardstock (retired Stampin’ Up). When I had an arrangement I liked, I simply trimmed the excess from the bottom.  Before adding my brads, I added Shimmer Spritz…liberally.  My base was cut from heavy Whisper White cardstock.  I printed my greeting on regular Whisper White using the AlwaysHere font.  It was matted on a piece of yellow cardstock, color matched to digital patterned paper from the All That’s Timeless Kit by Traci Reed.  This paper coordinated with the sleds beautifully. 

To finish, I punched a circle, scored it in the middle and attached it over the end of the card.  I punched a 1/4″ hole in the center and tucked some ribbon through.  I also used a corner punch for the top edges of the card.  Here’s a closer look at the scene:

As much as I love the winter theme, I also like the sentiment on the reverse.  I think this would make a smile break out on the recipient’s face!

The nice thing about this card technique is that it fold’s flat for mailing.

Have you seen the other cards I made with the new releases in the store?  If not, here’s one for you.

    Great standing pop-up card. Do the brads slide easily though the slot?

      No so much, lol! I could have cut a larger slit to accommodate them, but would then have to be sure to place a brad at the very bottom to keep the panel from sliding back into the base.

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