Our Creative Corner Challenge #2

The Creative Corner's Challenge#2 was to use buttons and brads on your card.  I needed a quick thank you, so this is what I came up with:

Fresh Cuts Thank you

As you can see, this is a very simple layout.  The buttons were from my button can; the brads are SU's gold brads.  Holding them with my reverse tweezers from the Tool Kit, I dabbed them in Versamark, then in White Embossing Powder, and very carefully heat embossed them.  Then I added just a drop of Crystal Effects for some extra shine.  Thanks for visiting today!

  • Stamps:  Fresh Cuts
  • Paper:  Flowers for You, WW
  • Ink:  Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Soft Sky, Versamark
  • Acc:  Buttons, Brads, White EP, Heat Tool, Soft Sky Stitched Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Crystal Effects

You are the bee's knees girl. Just when I start loading cardstock on my cards, you make a card with just a few layers.

I'm really enjoying making my cards now. And to think I was making cards with as few papers and embellishments as I could get away with.

What an amazing idea to turn gold brads into white ones!! I've never understood why SU doesn't have white brads ... but, I guess they do!! Thanks so much for sharing!!! Cute card, too!
