Hi!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards.

Another new release at Eyelet Outlet store are the Duck/Goose Brads.

I had to do a little bit of thinking about how I wanted to use it; but when I settled on an idea, I was tickled with it.  Here's my card:

I made the card with a file purchased in the Silhouette's the pocket I was after.  I printed the pocket using digital patterned paper and then color matched the card stock; Crushed Curry for the base, Melon Mambo and Island Indigo for the mats and Very Vanilla for the focal image, the pocket insert and the sentiment mat inside.

The adorable Goose is the centerpiece of the card, but those Blue Pearl Bling sure do command attention, too!  I added a touch of ribbon to the top of the tag.

You pull out the tag and...

...were you expecting that? LOL  I'm hoping it made you smile!

Inside I though I'd expand on the goose theme with the sentiment on a panel of Very Vanilla, matted on the same card stock as the front.  

I have another idea for the additional geese I have in my stash, so stay tuned for another card using these in the future. 

In the meantime, I want to point out a new feature on the blog.  In the toolbar, you will now see Slide Show Gallery which will link you to all EO's seasonal favorites.  And, if you don't want to miss a thing, you can follow us on Flickr, too.

Who provided the inspiration for these cards?  Katy did!


  1. Well sure had me giggling, I sure didn't expect that but it's awesome, great use of the bling and the goose.

  2. LOL!!!! Kim this is fabulous!!! Love your humor and the style of your card! Great color combo as well. I have to say that you are totally right about the goose being the center of attention, but those blue pearls really have a way of letting us know their the perfect touch ;O)
