EyeConnect Crafts DT Badge

I was mentally designing an artist trading card that needed to have some stitching…I’m not really a sewer!  Then I thought about the Lace-ups I had just gotten from Eye Connect Crafts.  Phew.

The arched tag was the perfect size for an ATC…what about splitting it?  How to decorate?  I liked where it was going so…I started.

I split the arched tag by using an OmniGrid and an Exacto knife.  This was easy, only needed a few passes.  Also, the cut edge is smooth.  Nice!

The doors are glued on, I left them clothespinned together overnight while they dried.

  1. Card Base: Product packaging.
  2. Background:  Folk Art – Rose Pink, Distress Ink – Walnut Stain, and a cherry blossom stamp inked with pigment ink – white.  The cherry blossom is barely visible.
  3. Image:  This is an image I got via an Apple app (with appropriate copyright).  I sized for the front of the doors, and edged it with Distress Ink – Barn Door.  A portion of this image is also used inside the doors, but the overall image size is different.
  4. Doors:  Eye Connect Crafts – Tag, Arched, sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Barn Red, I used Copic R59 to color the area I cut, and the fabric is rust colored wired ribbon.
