I love using unusual products to make embellishments for my cards. One of my favorite things to use is metal tape that is usually used to seal ductwork in your home. This tape is made of a heavy aluminum foil and is adhesive backed. One of the fun ways to use it is to stick a piece down onto cardstock and then emboss it in an embossing folder.
Here is a wedding card I created that includes a heart embellishment made with metal tape. I used a small Cuttlebug embossing folder that had this heart as part of the overall embossing design. After embossing, I simple cut the heart out (the metal tape cuts easily with scissors), punched a small hole and added a tiny bow using 1/8" ribbon. I only wish I had more embossing folders with this type of image!
The sentiment label was cut and inked and adhered to the card front. I used an adhesive backed silver stud/button thingy at the top of the label to coordinate with the silver heart.
This card was a lot of fun to make. I need to come up with some more uses for this fantastic tape before my husband realizes it is no longer residing in his tool storage area! If you've got some other ideas, I hope you'll share them with me.
Thanks for stopping by and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day!
