Add A Little Dazzle’s metal sheets come in several colors and I chose the pretty Princess Pink to make my card. I also used Sweet ‘n Sassy’s New Beginnings and coordinating dies, along with a sentiment from Special Blend.
Here’s my card…I took a few photos so you can see how different the shiny metal looks when turned in the light. The metal craft sheet was embossed with a Sizzix butterfly embossing folder. Then I carefully added Stazon Black ink to the raised areas, dabbing my inkpad directly on the metal sheet.
Here’s some close-ups of the embossing. It’s also difficult to see but I added Wink of Stella to the butterfly and it really sparkles! The patterned paper diecut and the butterfly were both raised with foam dots.
The metal sheets are super easy to cut and work with. I used Scor-Tape to adhere it to the card which worked great. This was a fun project!
