Happy Birthday Card

This card is A5 in size and is made using a white linen effect, hand cut card blank.
Please forgive the quality of the pictures in this post, I didn’t realise that there was a smudge on the camera lens until I went to edit them.
This was the card I made for my Brother in Laws birthday.  The pictures makes the colour of the letters look a little pastel, but in real life I think they looked much more “masculine”!
I like the idea of using lots of texture, hence the corrugated card, mat and layered on silver to help accentuate and define the edges.
My self adhesive alphabet stash is going down …… if only on the vowel front, I am going to have to start being more inventive when it come to the making up of words for other cards, if I am going to make any more headway in using up the other consonants, as Marc keeps on telling me, time to get my Silhouette out.
I’ve added coloured wooden stars from Paperchase and tiny silver confetti stars here and there.  I put metallic brads in the corner of each word plaque but I am not sure if they add anything.
I don’t use brads enough, and have got quite a few that really do need using up, any ideas on how to use them on a card in bulk?

Oh yes defo Helen, you can use your machine for any font, any size!! Especially if you are running out of vowels!

Brads can be used for lots of things and I kno you like scarecrows, so what about this idea for something you could make to stick on the front of a card???

Or a small white card with lots of little punched out flowers with brads in the centre like this card?

Big hugs

Right got another 3 for you!!

Paper that looks like wood with nails in it!

Button brads and that way you can use up 2 embellishments at the same time!

Paper pinwheels! My mum done this in miniature on a card and used the brads to secure them onto the card!

Good luck
