Looking Good Birthday Boy

Good morning peeps.
It's time for a brand new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This time we would like to see your projects using:-


So how will you treat that? Simply add them to your design or incorporate them into your design. I had a look through my stash and I came up with lots of brads, large and small, shaped and plain and eventually decided to use simple silver ones in my design.

I've made a few cards using the MFT Zipper die set, it makes a great masculine card.
To start I took a side fold linen effect base card and cut a part circle from the top left, then cut another slightly larger part circle from a scrap of the same, then cut away the waste with the smaller circle die to create a welt. 
From a panel of leather effect white card, I cut the front jacket panel and cut away a couple of the zip dies. To get the distressed leather look, I first inked with Black Soot DI followed by Altenew's Permanent Black, hen buffed up the panel.
From some silver mirror card, I cut the zip parts and added them onto the inked panel. 
The sentiment, made up from a Woodware and STAMPlorations phrase was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed using white EP. 
Using a hole punch, I pre cut the holes for the brads before adding them and then popping up the panel up on pads over the base card.

That's about it from me but there's lots of inspiration over on the blog by the rest of the DT.
Why not join us, but don't forget to make it masculine!
