Considering I'm suppose to be packing and cleaning, I sure seem to be making lots of cards.
Oh well. The card I have made today is an anniversary card and it is also a submission to the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Today's challenge is a technique challenge and the technique is faux metal. I didn't follow the instructions provided. I decided to tweek the technique. I'm suppose to cover a piece of cardstock with gold or silver emboss power and heat it up. While it is warm, I'm suppose to press an image into embossing powder. Instead, I dry embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Big Shot. I then applied silver emboss powder and heated it up. This way the embossed imaged stood out. It still looks like metal.
Here is the card:
The faux metal isn't perfect. You can still see white, but I think it adds to the card. It gives it a rougher look. For a little color I decided to add a So Saffron flower from Vintage Vogue.
There you have it. Definitely give it a try.
