Okay so I'm on an ATC kick but that's why they are so much fun - small and full of possibilities. For this ATC I added a twist with a handmade designer embellishment using some of my studio tools. I used my Imaginisce i-top Tool to create my own designer brad. I used the medium size 22mm brad backing with decorative scrapbooking paper to cover it. I then distressed the paper with a black ink pad. I also used my Imaginisce i-top Paper Punch Medium size for 22 mm brads to cut two flower style shapes (also using scrapbooking paper). I distressed both the flower style shapes with various color ink pads and then cut one of the shapes using my design scissors to makes an organic shape to the petal edges. I layered them all on top of a die cut embellishment also in the shape of a flower. To top everything off I added a Y for YARN rub-on letter to the brad. I attached the designer brad to my chipboard ATC card with my hole puncher after I decorated the ATC card.
I love this brad making tool - it is a bit expensive but if you use a 50% off AC Moore coupon like I did it's worth it. You can use paper or fabric, although the fabric is a bit more tricky to manage if you want me to share with you youtube videos and website links that I have found helpful just leave a comment. Below is a website for more details on the tools mentioned in this blog posting.
