I (of course) prefer the white (the crisp contrast is just my style!). But that
These two cards allowed me to use up some old, old, old brads, too. I don't have any rusty ones, which would have looked stunning, but made do with good, ordinary brown...just like the sentiment. Brads are one of those embellishments that rarely get used but are nice to have around in neutral colors.
If you're new to stamping and haven't used brads, you should know these two tips:
1. Poke a hole with a push pin where you want the brad to go. Positioning it is much easier.
2. Never, ever, ever--under any circumstances--use brads on a one-layer card. It leaves unsightly brad butts showing.
Someone (*cough*Leslie*) said "butt" wasn't the proper term. They are "legs." Well, showing Brad's spread legs inside a card is even worse than showing his butt. Don't do it.
And don't blame me for the image in your head. It's Leslie's fault.
Let's circle back to kraft or white. Which do you like best? Why?
paper: Papertrey kraft and white
accessories: brads, dimensionals, copper metallic marker (Pentel, I think; and yes, working that rounded corner was a bear), metal ruler
