At my Stamp Club night on Monday, this is one of the projects we made. We used the Frienship Blooms stamp set out of the Sale-A-bration brochure. Did you notice that the stamp set coordinates with the Love & Happiness Rub-ons? I didn’t know before ordering them, but, the rub-ons in this package have 4 different coloured sheets. You’ll find a black, white, old olive and Chocolate Chip.
For this card we used a 6×6 piece of Kraft cardstock and folded it in half. We used a Soft Sky and Very Vanilla layer. The ink colour was Old Olive to match the Old Olive ribbon. We added a Pewter Build-A-Brad in the middle of the cut out flower. I love Build-A-Brad, it really adds that special touch to a card.
Here’s how to Build-A-Brad Works
Step 1: Punch hole in middle of flower. Step 2: Stamp Image on scrap pager and use 1/2" circle punch to punch out theimage that you want in your Build-A-Brad.
Step 3: Add a small amount of Liquid glue or glue dot to middle and add 1/2" punched circle. Step 4: Carefully remove top layer from package ensuring you don’t leave fingerprints on bottom and position on top of circle. Press down firmly to set.
Step 5: Place brad in punched holes.
Step 6: Flatten out the back of the brad. Voila!!! You now have a lovely Brad.
Can you picture how many different designs you can do with it? I hope you enjoyed the "How to" of Build-A-Brad!
