I chose to create a Thank you card for this challenge.
I used Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil folded in half for my Metal and I chose to dry emboss it using the Diamonds in the Rough Cuttlebug embossing folder. I used Gold and Copper Alcohol Inks to add color to the foil giving it a little more dimension.
I used both the cricut and die cuts for my card. I cut the top note shape using my Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge. I popped it up on some foam tape and heat embossed my sentiment.
I used the Circles #2 sizzix die to create my brown tulle flower.
I just love the colors and the harshness of the metal mixed with the softness of the tulle!
I hope you will give it a try!
