I have been wanting to try a drink can metal snowflake for a while so when I saw Hel's challenge this week I thought I would have a go and start on my Christmas tags early.
First of all I die cut a black tag and swished it in Brushed Pewter distress stain. Then I loaded it into a snowflake embossing folder after I had inked the inside with a silver Brilliance pad. I quite like the texture that this made the background. Then I took his quote and embossed in Pewter on black card, cut to shape and stuck it on top. The Snowflake was die cut using nestabilities snowflake out of a drinks can that cuts easily with my tonic scissors. I did the small one the same and then used alcohol ink in Slate and Cranberry just to take the glare of the aluminium away. The reverse side with the print on looked good too, I shall have to save that for another day!
Then I used different size red gems for accent and added one to the sentiment. A red ribbon at the top and there we go! Great fun and the metal was free! Hope you are all having a great Sunday. I'm off to play again. x
