30 Minute Card - Post #6

Adding embossing is a fast, easy way to add some real interest to a plain card front.  I used a tiny heart Cuttlebug folder for the card background and a larger heart for the center strip.

I was able to cut 3 of the center strips from one piece of embossed cardstock so I will have multiples of this card.

A Stampin' Up border punch was used on each edge of a 2" strip of blue cardstock and then I added colored brads into the embossed strip.

I didn't have six different colors of brads so I took a Promarker and just colored a white one to make it purple.  Shirley, aka Okieladybug uses glue dots on brads then dips them into glitter or embossing powder to customize them for her layouts.

It's a pretty card and it was completed in less than thirty minutes.
