Heart 2 Heart, week 4, project #2

I was so inspired by the Heart 2 Heart Challenge (http://heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com/2010/04/heart-2-heart-4-challenge.html) that I actually made two projects. I am home with sick kids today, so I am filling up my time with projects.
I used an older paper for this card. We are putting together some care packages for troops overseas so I thought I would make a card to go in them.
Here it is!


All products used are Close To My Heart. The pattern for the card came from our Wishes book and is called "Done Right" (pg 119).
I used the Blue Ribbon paper pack, Thoughtful Seasons stamp set for the "thanks", our twill and outdoor denim twill ribbon, soft set eyelets, hemp, and a chipboard star from a long ago Constant Campaign (Dazzling Diecuts, Fall 2008). I inked the star with Cranberry ink using my rubber brayer.
This is the first time that I have put eyelets in twill ribbon. It was tricky as the eyelets kept pulling through. I've done it in grosgrain ribbon before and it is much easier.
I wove two colors of ribbon together for the background of the star. The ribbon gets adhered to a piece of cardstock before the star is put on and it is all cut.
A close up:



Thanks for looking!
