Next week, I am once again hosting Tutorial Tuesday over at Cutters Creek, but I just couldn't wait to share all of the results! This month's focus is on embossing folders, so I am sharing one of my all-time favorite embossing techniques: faux metal! If you think you can make do with metallic cardstock or other ready-to-use products, think again. This has the look of real metal, combined with the ease of use of cardstock; it's a win-win!
You can visit the Cutters Creek blog next Tuesday for the full tutorial, but I got crazy and made three cards so I'm sharing the extra two here!
First, here's this techy/manly gem using some silver Diamond Plate:
This card is based on card sketch #5 from Sketch Support. The card base is textured cardstock from my stash, all papers are from Cosmo Cricket's Cogsmo line, stamps & inks are from Close To My Heart, and Glam Rocks for the i-Rock from Imaginisce. My borders were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
Next up, a classy & manly card:
This card design is based on card sketch #3 from Sketch Support (I change the squares to circles). My gold metal sheet is made using the Cuttlebug Clockworks embossing folder. The card base is Desert Sand cardstock (CTMH) sprayed with Glimmer Mist. Cardstock, stamps, & inks are from Close To My Heart; pattern papers are from Cosmo Cricket's Lil' Man line; gold brads are from my stash; phrase is from Making Memories; and all other metal embellishments are from Tim Holtz.
I hope you enjoyed today's ideas - don't forget to see the full tutorial on the Cutters Creek blog next Tuesday! And remember to stop back here the rest of this week for Blog Candy Week.
