I'm on a roll with masculine cards of late....trying to get my stash built up for up coming birthdays and get well wishes.
- Kraft Cardstock
- Star Template
- Backgrounds and Beyond linen stamp
- Paper Crimper (Fiskars)
- Embossed Brads
Wanted to share a short picture tutorial for making brads to match your project. It's not original with me, not sure just now where I saw it first....somewhere in the world of blogs!
You can see from the pictures I used plain ole office brads. Here's the steps to embossing your own brads.1. Holding the brad with pliers (it gets HOT when you emboss)--- tap the top of it on your embossing pad
2. Tap in selected color of embossing powder
3. Heat set with heat gun
4. While it's still hot you can re-dunk it in the embossing powder and re-heat for a thicker coat if you like
Wa-la you can now color your brads to match your project!
