embossed metal

Hello blog readers! Welcome to the H{ippity} Hop today! If you started on the blog hop here, thanks so much! For a full list of the beautiful blogs today showcasing all of our wonderful Ippity stamps , check out the Unity Opportunity Blog.

I’ve been working with metal lately and surprise, surprise, have more to share with you.

This card uses a double emboss technique where you emboss the metal with a Cuttlebug, Sizzix or other type of embossing folder first. Since the metal is silver with one side painted, emboss so that the raised side is the colored side. After embossing, rub the design with a sanding block. It really makes the image POP out!

Next, run the same piece of metal through BUT with a DIFFERENT design folder this time. I chose the herringbone texture for a high contrast. Sand that design a little too. Now you have a double embossed design element! Pair it with a beautiful sentiment from “The Simple Things” set and you’ve got a winning card.
