A late post, but it will be worth it.
This is the first time I've worked with sheet metal on a layout and I love it!
Easy to use and I especially love the color! I only wish I had more!!
This is my prized layout.
Hope you like it as much as I had fun putting it together.
Paper: DCWV, black textured paper (unknown),
EK Success Sheet Metal, Sizzix,
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, Big Shot,
Chipboard (unknown brand), Nestabilities Labels Die,
Ribbon, gem brad
Here's a close up of the embossed sheet metal.
For the arrow... I traced it over a scrap piece of patterned paper, then glued it in place
on top of the chipboard and added a gem brad for the center.
Pretty neat using the different embossing folders!
I think it added a nice affect on this layout.
I used the Nestabilities Die for the journaling (or title block) and added a bow.
Hope you had a wonderful day!
