I finally started playing with the metal from the Pepsi cans my husband brought home from his office for me. This is one result.
I cut the can apart and ran the metal through my Sissix Big Shot with my Cuttlebug Heart Blocks embossing folder. The material cuts easily with ordinary scissors and I trimmed the edges with my paper cutter. I used Scor Tape to mount the metal on a background of scrap card stock from the DCWV Mettallic Stack. The color is called “Penny” and it does look like one. The only new part of this card was half a sheet of Staples 110 lb. card stock in cream. This is an A2 card (4 1/4″ wide by 5 1/2″ tall.)
I decided to highlight one of the hearts with my Bic Mark-It in Rambunctious Red. It is not the neatest job I ever did, but then, I could never color exactly within the lines at school, anyway. (And it was 3:00 a.m. when I did this.) I love the effect – almost like enamel.
So, what do you think? I can’t wait to experiment with other embossing folders.
