A Little Vacation at Eyelet Outlet

Summer is nearing an end, but there’s still time for a little vacation at the beach before it’s back to the books.  There’s no shortage of brads and washi tape with a beach theme at Eyelet Outlet.  For my sunglasses shaped card today, I used:

Sun & Cloud Brads

Shell Brads

Sandcastle Brads

Seagull Brads

Flamingo Brads

Swirl Bling-Clear

And here’s my card with a view as one would see through a pair of sunglasses…check out those swanky diamonds on either side.  I made the card using a cut file from the Silhouette store.   It wasn’t a card when it started; but with a bit of work, it ended up that way.  It’s easy to do when you create a mirror image and weld the two.

Before I added my elements, I randomly stippled the white background with soft sky ink.  Then I added my card stock pieces, covering them with the black frames.  Saving the best for last, I added the brads.  It was fun designing my scenes.  Here’s a closer look at each side:

Inside, I used another file from the Silhouette store.  I printed it inside an outline of the glasses.  Seems like good advice for a great day at the beach.
