Video Tutorial 3 - Metallic Frame Using a Leaf Pen or Metallic Markers


Click on the "play" button to start the tutorial



Hi everyone! This is the finished cards of the tutorial. You can't really see it in the picture but in person, the edge of the cardstock is framed with a gold lining using a Gold Leaf Pen. It matches the gold embossed image.

The color combo is SU Bravo Burgundy and Cranberry Crisp, golden rod by Serendipity and the base card is actually a stripe embossed cardstock by DCWV. The stamp is by Penny Black.

I placed the lamp too close to the card so when I took the picture it washed out the dry embossing of the card base.

Sorry about the terrible picture of the gold embossed image but like I've said in the past, I can't capture shiny metallic images with my camera. I need to figure out how to keep it from being so reflective.



I created a whole bunch of these cards in different colors. I took picture of only two of them because the only difference is the color combo.


This one is a Cool Caribbean and Wild Wasabi combo. I used SU Glitzy Blue embossing powder and Silver Leaf Pen to frame the image. I wish you could see the silver lining but I can't take a good picture of anything metallic.
