DoCrafts Forever Friends Cosy Christmas Jelly Brads

Aghhhh, why do crafty companies do this to me ….. how could I resist  these Forever Friends jelly brads?  Just look at the gingerbread boy and girl, they are NOT going on a card ….. they are for me"! The brads cost £3.99 for 17 brads, which is about 17p each, but I reckon I will get at least 8 cards from the pack.
I’ve used this picture frame, (50p from a car boot sale) that has stood empty on my nik nak shelves for months …… just waiting …. waiting for my little gingerbread people!

Now for the cards…….

I’ve kept the design pretty simple, using a Nestabilities scalloped square die as the base which I’ve stuck down on foam pads for bit of extra dimension.

And then I’ve gone berserk with the flat backed gems!
