I have 2 projects for you!! Working with this line of craft metal is fantastic, easy to work with and super fun!.

Each day is a gift: Love all the dimension in this project. Beautiful.
For this project I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch #220


Here are the details:
  • Make card base from White cardstock, A2 size.
  • Cut a panel from Red Cardstock (3 1/8" x 4.75"), mat it with a smaller White piece, add straight stitches.
  • Die-cut a Decorative Frame using Wondrous White Metal Sheet, then emboss it with an embossing folder, sand the emboss part with a sanding block, after that apply Golden Glitz Delicata ink, set aside to dry.
  • Cut a piece of Wondrous White Metal Sheet, prepare it with embossing buddy, then stamp a blossom from Thankful Blossom Set in Versamark Watermark Ink, add red embossing powder and heat set (Apply the heat from behind the piece, so you don't burn the powder, also use tweezers to hold the craft metal sheet) After it cools, die-cut piece with coordinated Blossom dies.
  • Repeat the same with leaves, Bend the ends to give a more natural look.
  • Add frame, blossom and leaves to card panel.
  • Stamp sentiment from Celebrate Today set in Jet Black Archival Ink.
  • Die-cut a border using Lacey Eyelet Border Dies and Perfect Peacock Metal Sheet. Add border to panel.
  • All card panel to card base.


It's the little things: This card was very quick to make and the picture just doesn't make justice on how pretty it is. The shimmer from the Scarlet Red Metal Sheet is beautiful.
I used the sketch from Seize the Sketch.

  4. Both are very pretty but I'm drawn to the top one. I'm going to have to go see how many colors are available - this is getting exciting! I'm curious how thick this is. I can't get the cards I make for Operation Write Home too thick, but I can definitely see this used in the other group where I donate my cards.
