Coming up with paper card making ideas can be delightful when using fun embellishments like brads so start making handmade cards with this accent. There are so many types and colors of brads these days, unlike the years past when they only came in silver and gold.

Use brads on your sentiment. I rounded the corners on the sentiment and added brads on the ends of the sentiment for this handmade birthday card.

I like to keep a package of assorted colors of brads in my supply box so they are handy just in case I need a little accent for my handmade greeting cards.

You can use brads over vellum if you don't have vellum tape and need to attach a vellum piece on your card. This baby shower invitation used two glittery brown brads.
