Faux Metal True Friend...

There are a couple of ways to get a metal look without using metal.

You can use a VersaMark pad and silver embossing powder to heat emboss on brushed silver card stock as with the "Thank U" below, or you can build up layers of silver (or other metal color) on white card stock and push in your stamp for a faux metal look (I call this "pooling").

The ribbon is from a Ribbon Originals pack, and the black brads are from a Vintage brads pack. The card itself is Bashful Blue. Hope you like it!
