52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - Embellishments

Hey there, I decided to pop over to 52CC Throwdown as I haven't made a Chrissy card for a little while and was having withdrawals.
So, I get over to the challenge and then I'm "OMG, not Eyelets"!!!!!
Farout, brussell sprout! What am I going to do now? I have little tiny eyelets from about 10 years ago when I started to Scrap but still had no idea how to use them LOL!
Then I remember that my dad had bought me this hideous looking contraption with these large eyelets and I have never opened the packet. Of course I couldn't find it now I was looking for it. So, off I trot to Dad. After a search in the garage, we found them! I then had to practice with them to make sure I was doing it right.
My creativeness certainly wasn't at full when I made this card. The eyelets got popped in the corners of the card and that was as adventurous as I got ;)
Here is my card -

I have used some brand new Festival of Prints DSP. The sentiment is from my Sassy Salutations set. Very basic, I am afraid but the word "Eyelet" must have got me all mushy brained lol.

Thanks for looking xxx

  5. I think you did a fab job with this card. Eyelets freak a lot of us out but that's what challenges are for. The bow is gorgeous.

  8. Your eyelets were in hiding....LOL I haven't use any in a long time either. I won a big lot of eyelets on ebay about a year ago and don't dare tell hubby that I haven't used one of them yet. LOL

    I love the eyelets you chose for your card, they look perfect in the corners. Thanks for joining us this week at 52CCT!
