Hi, everyone! I am so honored to be guest designing today for Add a Little Dazzle! If you’re not familiar with them, they specialize in Craft Metal Sheets that can be die cut and embossed for cards, scrapbooking, 3D items and more.
Before I tell you about my project, I have to tell you that Add a Little Dazzle is having a little give away—a 5-sheet pack of metal sheets along with a product from MFT! How cool is that? To qualify for the drawing, you must comment on this post AND on the post at Add a Little Dazzle. Do that and you’ll be automatically entered. Deadline for entering is Friday, August 29th. Be sure to get all the details at the AALD blog. Monica, owner of Add A Little Dazzle, is also going to have a special sample pack available for sale that will include some free PDF tutorials to help you get started with metal craft sheets.
So, about my card :) I started with a Steel Gray card stock base, then on some Sweet Tooth card stock and with Grout Gray ink, I stamped Romantic Script Background. With Steel Gray ink, I over stamped that with a sentiment from LJD Together Forever. Then I started working with the Craft Metal Sheets. I used a Golden Glimmer Metal Sheet to cut out a Rectangle Frames Die-namics frame and I adhered it to my card front with foam tape. I cut the strips of foam tape to about 1/8” wide and placed them on the outside edge. By doing this, I could carefully “mold” the metal frame down towards the center so it looks so much like a real frame! Love that look!
Next I cut out a Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics from a Perfect Peacock Metal Sheet, attached it to the corner of my card and started to create my flowers. I used a Princess Pink Metal Sheet, cut with Pretty Posies Die-namics, gently shaped the petals, and attached them with hot glue. To finish them off, I added some flat back pearls for the centers.
I love the dimension I got with the metal craft sheets, and the colors are gorgeous!!
Here are the products I used:
