Metal-ology


Hi  guys. I love the cute little metal embellishments you can buy for cards and scrapbooking. As usual, I have quite a few in my stash...that get looked past all the time. Ever so often I challenge myself to use one or two on a card or project. Today was one of those days.

I love the look of a partial dry embossed card background. Using my Victorian Cuttlebug folder, I partially embossed some cream cardstock. To separate the two textures I added a strip of ribbon which I used to attach a metal butterfly embellishment from. Finally I stamped a sentiment...and added some black jewels.

Not a whole lot to it -- yet it looks elegant. I'm loving Clean & Simple!!!
