Today's technique/tutorial is: Embossing Metal

Here are a few tutorials for this technique:
Simple Card with Embossed Metal - YouTube
http://www.curbly.com/users/diy-mave...can-snowsicles

Approximate time from start to finish: About 2-5 minutes to do the embossing (if using a pop can, it takes longer to cut the can than it does to actually do this technique).

Difficulty: I'm going to say a 1.

Suggestions: If using a pop can - the edges will be very sharp so be careful!

If you run the pop can through a big kick or cuttlebug or similar machine with a die, it will dull the edges of the metal for you!!

You can emboss with either a machine or by hand with a stylus or tough ball point pen.

You can emboss pop cans, aluminum foil glued on cardstock, metal sheets bought in craft stores, lots of options.

Here is a card that I made last year using this technique:



Now it is your turn!! I challenge you to give this technique a try!!

I've embossed pop cans before, but it's been a while. I love how it looks on that card, what emboss folder did you use?

It is the Cuttlebug Diamond Plate embossing folder.

Thanks! That's one I don't have. I have way too many emboss folders too, but they are at least nicely organized.

I love this! I don't think I have much use for it since I have girls and this looks more boy-ish, but I'm definitely going to have to try it!
