I have a quick card to share with you today. I never seem to have enough "get well" cards in my stash, so I have been trying to make a few of those to have on hand when I need them. This week I saw two challenges asking us to use eyelets. I don't use eyelets often anymore, but I sure have a nice stash of them! I decided to make a Clean and Simple (CAS) get well card using eyelets. I still set mine the old-fashioned way (no fancy setter for me), so this was a great excuse to raid my husband's toolbox and hammer away my frustrations!
Here's my card:
I used one of my favorite two-sided Authentique papers to create the background and flowers. I die cut the flowers and added red flower-shaped eyelets to the centers. I distressed the petals with Antique Linen Distress Ink, then rolled the edges of the flowers to add dimension. I stamped the sentiment directly on the background paper by first inking the stamp with Versamark and then inking with Memento Rich Cocoa. I attached the panel to a Natural White card base, then added three pearls to highlight the sentiment. I adhered the centers of the flowers to the background paper and added Glossy Accents over the eyelets to add some shine. Quick and easy!
I am linking this card to the following challenges:

- "Anything Goes" ABC19 challenge at 'ABC' Challenges
