UIW Class Monday 1st September 2008

Hi everyone,
Today I am sharing the card my ladies made on Monday. With Fathers' Day this weekend, the ladies wanted a male card that could be adapted for any occasion.

This card is based on another tag shaped card I made a couple of years ago.
Don't forget you can click on the images for a larger view.

Cardstock from SU!: Basic Black, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust
Copper eyelets (unknown)
Copper sheeting (from Stampabit)
Copper Leafing pen (from Stampabit)
"Carte Postale" Stamp set (SU!)
Stylus (embossing tool) & foam mat
White Gel Pen (SU!)
Adhesives - tiny foam dots, double sided tape

Ooops forgot to tell you how to make it lol!
Cut a piece of folded A5 black cardstock to created a tag-shaped card
each of the subsequent layers were trimmed to this shape as well.
Trim a piece of copper sheeting to measure 6x6cm.
Stamp the image in the centre and heat set with a heat gun.
Using the stylus and foam mat, I traced around the stamped image, then turned it over and embossed it with an embossing tool (you can use a larger stylus for this too). I also added some texture to the outer frame.
I put tiny foam dots in each petal and in the centre of the flower and ordinary tape around the frame.
The eyelets were set with the cropadile.
I went around the edge of the black card and the first layer (Creamy Caramel) with the leafing pen.

Have a great day!

I always like working with metal. I haven't embossed with metal in ages. Must do it again soon. Thanks for inspiring me.
