I always like a design with elements that fit into recesses but surely it's a bit time-consuming? The answer is no - not with the indispensable post it note! For this card I punched three circles out of the sticky part of a post it, arranged them where I wanted them on the card stock strip and then punched through them, using my punch upside down so that I could see where I was punching. The card stock strip is mounted onto the card base using dimensionals to make nice deep recesses.
I didn't want the prongs of the brads poking through the back of the card front, so I snipped them off with my Craft and Rubber scissors. (I can't praise these scissors enough - they do all the rough jobs my paper snips won't do: nothing cuts through rubber or chipboard like them and even snipping metal doesn't seem to blunt them.) The brads were then placed into their recesses with dimensionals.
These brads are so cute they really deserve to take centre stage on a card. They come in a tub (which you can alter once you've used the brads!) and there are four funky designs.
I finished the card by added a sentiment and punching a scalloped border and tucking it under the top of the recessed strip.

My youngest son who was looking over my shoulder as I typed this, said wistfully that I haven't made a cake lately or given him jelly beans for that matter... However as I watched him consume practically double his weight at the cake stall at the fair on Saturday, this is cutting no ice with me!
See you tomorrow,
