Build a Brad

When the new catty came out, one of the new accessories in it was Build a Brad. This is a cool way to customise your brads so that they match your card or scrapbook page. Today, while at an event organised by my upline Kim, we were talking about the many ways you could use it... stamp an image, use some DSP or a photo. Now Kim thought that it might be too small for a photo. Well that just screamed challenge to me. So when I came home, I decided to make a brad using a photo of Kim.

And this is what I came up with. (Click on the photo to see it better) My cyber friend Nerine...waving Hi Nerine :)... made this fabulous card and I decided that I would make one too. I have used the Embrace Life stamp set and stamped the bamboo stamp in Brocade and Pretty in Pink. I mounted the 3 panels in Pretty in Pink. I put the brad in the middle of the Think Happy Thoughts set and then punched it out using the 1 1/4" circle punch, mounted it on a 1 3/8" Brocade circle and then mounted it all on a Pretty in Pink scallop circle punch. I am really happy with how the card has turned out!
What do you think?
Cheers
Chrissie

Great job Chrissie, I agree that you should take it to convention. Maybe submit it for Stamper's showcase.

Hi Chrissie, perhaps everyone going to convention should wear one!! You need to know who you belong to so far from home!! Do you have the large star punch?!!! Have fun!!
