Bah! Humbug! Metallics

The challenge over at Bah! Humbug! this week is metallics.

Whilst I was racking my brain trying to think what to do I came across a sheet of Ten Second Studio black metal so thought I would use it.  I cut the sheet to size so I could use a DoCrafts embossing folder with baubles on it.  I ran it through my  JT machine and then sanded over the raised parts which took off the black and revealed the silver underneath.  It's then been mounted onto some white glitter card and black mirri and I punched the corners with an Xcut silhouette corner punch which allowed me to slide the top two layers under the punched area.  This was then mounted onto a 5"x7" card covered with hand made white paper with silver flakes (although I don't think you will see this from the photograph).  I added some clear gems and a small greeting peel-off.

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. Excellent result with the TSS metal and that embossing folder is magic - I seem to have missed that one!!

  2. Ooooh yummy yummy! The embossing really shows up beautifully on the black metal when sanded. How clever are you?! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
