Have you ever used house hold materials or off the wall products for you projects? Today’s card features Copper! That’s right… this card is made of Copper Flashing that I bought at Lowes. Pretty Cool isn’t it?
You’ll notice the base of my card is Chocolate Chip Card stock. I tore a small piece of Crumb Cake just to break up the card. The next earthy layer is Cajun Craze. It is a 4″ x 4″ square. The next layer is 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ Very Vanilla.
Believe it or not I actually cut the copper to size using my cutting board. Now keep in mind… this will dull your blade and depending on how many you cut you’ll probably have to replace it; however, if you already have a blade to replace then I would cut the copper before I replaced it. You can use which ever Textured Embossing folder you would like to dry emboss your copper. The card above features the Vintage Wallpaper textured folder. Its beautiful!
The really small square is also Very Vanilla card stock. I used the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die to Die Cut my butterfly. I then used the Vintage Wallpaper textured folder to add the impressions to it. The greeting is from a retired hostess set and its stamped in Cajun Craze. To finish the butterfly I added a small flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. The flower is embellished with a copper or rust color brad.
Its really easy and simply stunning!!! I hope I have inspired you to think outside of the box and try some new materials. This card was created for my September Stamp camp and will also be sent as a Thank You for my Stamp Club and Stampin’ Up! Orders. I can’t wait for the ladies to receive them.
