Card Jewelry

I've seen people put stickpins in their cards, and I always thought that was a bad idea - wouldn't that be dangerous? What if you mailed a card with a stickpin - wouldn't there be a risk of poking through the envelope? What if the postman got stuck?

I realize that it isn't about the stickpin, it's about putting jewelry on a card. It seems to me that if I can make jewelry for my body, I can make jewelry for my cards, and I can even make stickpins with blunt tips if I want. That's what I did for this little ATC:

I used the Sketch and Stash challenge, using my new K&Co papers, and also this is the first time I've used this TAC stamp. I colored it in with my Stargazers, and I made a little "stickpin" out of copper wire and some beads.

Beautiful ATC- and I am also reluctant to use the pins- like your layout so you will not get 'poked'. TFS
