Faux Metal Cards

For my monthly SU meeting, we had the swap theme of Faux Metal. Apparently there are two different faux metal techniques. The technique that I did was from Split Coast and it was kind of a pain. The second technique that some of the ladies did was using metallic paper and embossing on it with matching metallic powder (I really liked how this technique came out versus the one that I did).

We have a very talented group of ladies and I wanted to share their cards:



Jane used the embossing onto the metallic paper technique.



Kehau used the technique linked above.



Brenda used the technique linked above.



Michelle used the embossing onto the metallic paper technique.



Lorraine used the embossing onto the metallic paper technique.



Shelby used the technique linked above.



Melissa used the technique linked above.



And I also used the technique linked above. Enjoy and aloha!

These all turned out beautifully! Thanks for sharing! I agree with you on the one technique. It is a pain! I'm planning to use the "other" technique on some upcoming Christmas cards! Best, Curt
