So I thought I would make it into a Father's Day card. First, I used my CB embossing folder(Distressed Stripes) on my card base Bordering Blue. Next I used a round corner punch and distressed the edges. Added layers of Night of Navy and Real Red. In the four corners I used silver brads with metal spacers from the Jewelry section at the craft store. Now, I'm not a person who knows much about beading or making jewelry so I hope this made sense!! It jazzed up the brads very nicely. I found this idea from Bev at All the Things I Love. Pop in for a visit as she has such adorable cards using this technique and her cards are full of color and embellies! :)
Here is a close up of a brad with a spacer. Click on the photo's for a closer look. Crystal effects is also added to the windows of the light house and building. It's hard to see in the photo.
