Grungy Metal for Dad on Father’s Day – by Deb Saaranen

(Current US Shipping Special – $3.95 – $5.95)

Good Friday morning! Deb is here today with a super fabulous and textural card for Dad on Father’s Day. I adore the grungy metal look she achieved using an embossing folder and a heavy weight silver mirrored cardstock. Take a look. I think you’ll agree with me!

This is one of those cards I wish I could run my fingers across and feel!

Deb used a Tim Holtz embossing folder called Mechanics.

She embossed a sheet of the heavy Bazzill Mirror Cardstock in silver and then grunged it up a bit.

Just look at all that wonderful texture!

The sentiment is from our All Occasion Sentiments SET 2 which Deb has embossed in silver and cut with our Fishtail Sentiment Banners.

Thank you so very much, Deb, for this wonderful Father’s Day card.

There are so many men out there who this card would be just perfect for!
