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.

I love the look of the copper on the card. Did you have to use special adhesive with the copper?
What a gorgeous card! … You are amazing.
This card IS stunning! It’s probably my favorite one that uses the copper flashing! I may have to CASE it sometime!
Hi Martha, Randee and Tonya,
Thank You all for the very kind comments. I love this card too and it is so easy to make. Feel free to case it! Yes, Randee I use mini glue dots to hold it in place. There is actually a bit of plastic that you peel off the back. Its a bit sticky and then you add the mini glue dots and it works well! Thanks again for stopping by and have a great weekend!
