PEARL TOPPED BRADS ... an elegant touch

.... even for a man.

Here is a really masculine card (for a religious man) showing that pearl topped brads can be used for a man:

On the outside of the card I used two digistamps from Digistamps  Joy, called Floral Cross and Freesian Booklet and created a frame around them.

I used a white CS base card, and blue DP of which I inked the edges for a little more definition.

The card opens up to reveal the two Bible texts 

and the third fold lifts up to reveal the message:

As the base card was 240gsm thick and there were three layers plus the DP, I needed to find a way to keep the card closed.  A little band of white CS and an off cut of the DP embellished with three pearl top brads from BLUEBERRY BEAR hold it closed nicely now.

Here are the brads that I think give a touch of class to an otherwise rather ordinary card front:
