I started with marking the back of the card with the arcs and stitching. Then measured and punched out the holes for the eyelets. Next came sponging all of vanilla cs with VersaMark and covering it with clear ep and embossing. Heated the ep and followed by sponging Creamy Caramel ink over the ep. Then I set the eyelets. I think this card is a little lacking, but have tried more ribbon, gold wire and some different hardware, but it distracts too much. Am open to suggestions if you have any.
I found that sewing circles on paper is harder than it would seem. Paper just doesn't turn under the needle as smoothly as fabric. But I liked the circle pattern on the inspriration photo.
Thanks Kthaman for a way to make a leather-looking background.
