Yesterday I went to a Stamp Club meeting at our LSS, that sadly is closing sometime this month. Besides working on another new project for me, using old CD's, we had a card swap. Each month there is a different theme for the swap cards and this month it was "metal". We could do what ever we wanted as long as we used some sort of metal on the card front. This is the card I received. When I first got it I thought that the center strip that is embossed was aluminum foil or some sort of foil paper. WRONG! It is a foil tape used by either electricians or plumbers. I forget which she said. (It's a senior brain thing!). The woman that made the card said it is really neat stuff and is self adhesive with a paper covering that needs to be removed to expose the adhesive. So she embosses it, colors it with Ranger Alcohol Inks and lets it dry before mounting it. The piece under it is also a tape like a cloth duct tape that she also colored using the Alcohol inks. I love how you can see the texture of the tape under the colors. Then she simply taped both pieces to here card stock. The card is quite striking in real life.
So now I need to find me a hardware store or maybe check out Wal-Mart. I want to give this technique a try.....my list to try seems to be getting longer by the day. If and when I find these items used in this card I will report them to you immediately. If you happen to already know what they might be, please leave a comment.
