You Are A Fox

Hello crafty friends! I'm so excited to be joining you with several cards and a video for my first DT post at BRI. 

Today I'm sharing a series of card that feature the Simple Stories Sweater Weather Brads and the Studio Calico Here and There paper pad.

In the video I explain a lot of design decisions that guided my cardmaking. I love the value of this Decorative Brad pack because there is a good balance in the size of the brads and there is this adorable fox you can cut out and turn into an embellishment.

I also like that while the Sweater Weather brads might be a bit of a splurge the Studio Calico paper pad I'm using is a great value (just $2.88!) and, when mixed with solid cardstock, you can make a lot of cards. 

I've also added finishing touches with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents. I love that the glossy accents can match handmade elements like the die cut words to the brads by giving a similar look.

So that's it for me. If you're as in love with this new Simple Stories collection as I am head on over to  the Butterfly Reflections Ink store and pick up all the elements. 
Thanks for stopping by! -Jess
