Monday Inspiration: How to Emboss Faux Metal

Did you know that you can buy contact paper that is faux metal? The photos on the packaging even show that it can be used to cover the front of a dishwasher to look like stainless steel. I just had to do a video to show you how to create this fabulous look for your cards and your scrapbooks. You are going to love it, I'm sure. I would again like to thank Sharon Field for posting a card using this technique on her blog.

The Faux Metal contact paper is made by Duck. It is 20" wide and 4 feet long. Contact paper has adhesive on the back which is why there is a protective cover on the back. Since contact paper curls easily, it is best to adhere it to a piece of card stock before working with it. This will flatten out the contact paper. You can use your BigZ dies and embossing folders from Stampin' Up!. Wait till you see the results. They are GREAT.

Ok, here's the video on how to emboss faux metal .. if you are reading this via e-mail you will need to come to my blog to view the video.

In the video when I am using the Top Note die, I tell you to put the paper upside down on the die. The best way to remember is to put the shiny side down...shiny side against the die.

Very nice Mary. I can't wait to try it at class.
I'm going to share a roll of the metal contact with Loraine and she can play with it.
