Metal Embossing Ala Good Old Days

onsdag 10 april 2013

Hello everyone!
I'm back again, and that is because of  Ett Trykk.
They have started the week with new challenges for us, the first one is about metal embossing in the "old-fashioned" way.

I liked the idea with ​​the heart, so I started by making my own that I thought for a man´s card.
Therefore I used the paper Magic Mushrooms from Landstoken for the background.

I wrapped a few times around the heart with metal wire and fastened a little tag with it.
I added a little Inka Gold around the edges of the tag, and on the heart.

The sentiment on the tag was stamped with a Rox stamp, then I cut it out with a Magnolia Doohickeys die. The big sentiment were made with a stamp from Bildmålarna.

I also used Coredinations paper that I sanded and adhered together with ribbons and flowers.
I show you the inside as usual...
I found some more challenges for my card:
Papertake Weekly - Bingo (Glitter, Die Cuts, Bloom)
Divas By Design - Flowers
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Anything Goes - Heavy Metal
Stamp With Fun - Birthday
Robyns Fetish - Anything Goes
Dream Valley - Happy Birthday

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
