Birthday Sundaes Challenge #22 - Brads

Hello Everyone!  It's time again for another fun Birthday Sundaes challenge!  If you are looking for a great way to build your Birthday Card stash, then please join us!  This week our challenge is to use at least 3 Brads on your Birthday Card!  The DT has come up with a very nice selection of Birthday Cards with Brads to inspire you!  We have a talented Guest Desinger joining us this week too!  Here is what I came up with!

I hand-cut these little pinwheels, added my 3 Brads to the centers and adhered a bakers twine bow to each one to match the brads.

I stamped the "Happy Birthday" stamp around the corner and doodled around the three panels.  Then I popped them up to give the card lots of dimension!

Products Used:
  • Bo Bunny Double Dot
  • Stampin' Up! Cardstock
  • Stampin' Up! Pattern Paper
  • Bo Bunny Brads
  • Helmar Zap Dots
  • My Craft Spot Inside & Out Set #2 Stamp Set
  • My Craft Spot Bakers Twine
I hope you'll dig into that stash this week for our Brads Birthday Card Challenge at Birthday Sundaes!  Remember you must use at least 3 brads and your birthday card must have birthday wording or a birthday sentiment on the card front!  Please join us!  Thanks for stopping by today!
