Christmas Card with Brads

I am struggling for ideas on how to use my Dovecraft brads. I think they are so lovely that the design has got to be very plain in order that it’s the brads that you notice.

I have fiddle farted with scalloped edges and the matching papers that go with the brad set but everything looks pants!

In the end I have used my small scalloped square punch and layers of russet red bazzill paper and silver card in a simple centre square.
To make the brads sit flat on the card, I have cut off the metal prongy things and put a small sticky pad into the hollow back. The snowman’s little face is so cute!
