It's Raining Eyelets Card

 
Todays card is actually inspired by the Moxie Fab World challenge "The Color Media Challenge". For quite a while I have been playing in my head with different ideas of how to use some of my old eyelets. I bought them years back when I made LO's and just haven't really used them since. For some reason I just don't reach for them when I am making cards.
 
Todays card was really fun to make and very simple. It does take a lot of work due to all the eyelets, but it is totally worth it!
 
 
It made sense to make this a two layer card due to the not so pretty backside when using eyelets. Also it made it possible to create the "Hello", which I on purpose has kept all in white. I wanted the raining eyelets to "pop" and be the main focus on the card.
 
First I had to find out how many eyelets I had of each colour. I ended up with 6 colours which created a perfect rainbow look. Then I measured the card front to make 6 vertical lines and added pencil dots with help of a ruler.
 
Next step was to make all the holes for the eyelets. That was the most tricky part. I only have a Silent Setter from ProvoCrafts and the cutting tool seems to be dull. Therefore, not every hole were a perfect cut and a couple of them even shifted off line....tough luck!
 
 
The "Hello" is cut with a Memory Box alphabet. These letters are a perfect size for cards. I decided not to add any coloured card stock behind the letters. As you know it was because I wanted to keep focus on the raining rainbow eyelets.
 
With this card I am participating in Moxie Fab Worlds challenges:

That's it for now. Thanks for taking a peek today :)
