Retro Rubber #8....Eyelet Fun...............


It's Team A's turn to show you our makes for the latest Retro Rubber challenge time - Eyelets..

Don't forget to use a stamp that is over a year old on your project.

At one point in my craft adventure I was head over heels in love with eyelets and my Crop-a-Dile..then I just neglected them..

But now they are back in action and starring alongside some fun up to date touches.

The fox stamp is a fave, I've had it approx 3 years, it was free with a magazine - Get Stamping, I don't think they publish it anymore. The thing I love about this stamp is the flaw, so you get a bit of a mark on the fox's body.

I stamped the fox along with the sentiment onto a tag. I wanted to layer the card, so I used a scrap of leopard print paper and a brown Papermania doily. I used a silver eyelet to secure it all to the backing paper.

It felt a bit bare, so I added teeny tiny eyelets to 2 corners of the card.

A fun way to use eyelets and rediscover a tool.

The challenge runs until February 27th.

Join in the fun over at Retro Rubber and get inspired by the fun creations from my lovely teammates.



  1. Your fox is adorable paired with the doily, patterned paper, and, of course, the eyelets!

  3. This is super cute. Your image makes me want to ask what does the Fox say?

  4. Aw, your card is super fun! Love that fox and your choice of colors make him really pop!

  5. A really fun card Claire, even though I'm not a fox fan (you know keeping chickens and al that) this one is super cute! Hugs Carole Z X
