Laura's Tip: Hide the prongs of the brads by securing to the paper prior to gluing to the card.

  1. Place fold at the top of the card. Cut the plaid paper to 5" x 6 1/2" and blue texture paper to 1" x 5". Glue the blue to the left edge of the plaid with 1/4" strip of green cardstock over the seam of the papers. Add penstitching to the blue strip and brown mini brads to the green strip.
  2. Cut a 4" x 3 1/2" mat of blue paper and mat with green cardstock. Add a collage of art, word strips and Brad Buddies™ to the blue mat. Glue blank squares under the tools to frame them. Add pen stitching around the edges and glue to the front of the card.
  3. Inside the card: Cut a 1 1/2" x 5" strip of plaid paper, glue a 1" strip of blue across the bottom with a 1/4" strip of green cardstock. Add penstitching to the blue strip and brown mini brads to the green strip.
  4. Print a greeting onto a tag and collage with word strips, art and Brad Buddies™. Glue inside the card.
