March of the Toys

So many of the Eyelet Outlet brads are perfect for realistic cards ... but today, I'm looking at my brad collection through the eye of creating my own Toy Story.

I started with March of the Toys Designer Paper from the Carta Bella Toy Box Collection and then created my own Toy Box Parade.  I started with a few pieces of Building Block Washi Tape to help ground the parade (remember you can click on the pictures to see a larger view).

Next I went through my entire brad stash and pulled out any that I thought would be found in a Toy Box.  

I added a winter sled (one of the new Fall Brads), a fun little convertible car (doing a wheelie for my brother), a motorcycle, cartoon fish, a stuffed giraffe, a fun Monster, a Toy Army Man ... and of course some building blocks.

I finished with a dump truck (one of our favorite toys because we could play in the dirt and rocks), another wheelie car, a stuffed lion and round brads for some bouncing balls.

I had so much fun creating my card, there will likely be more toy-themed designs in my future.

  1. Stephanie, I love these cards you make with a Christmas song as a jumping off point. Such a clever idea and you have used so many adorable EO brads here. Just so cute!
