I used a new-to-me technique on my card today. Tammylee Newberry did a tutorial she called "Embossing on Pop Cans" for the Tutorial Team on Speedy TV. I combined this technique with the challenge that Brenda O'Rear gave the CCEE team this week to get some winter or Christmas cards in the mix and use snowmen. I cut my soda can open and washed it off. I then stamped the snowflakes in Whisper White and embossed with detail white embossing powder. I thought it would be easier to cut the cardstock rather than the aluminum, so I cut out my oval from the DP and then cut the border using a scallop and a straight die at the same time.
To find the tutorial for this technique, go to Speedy TV. And, if you'd like to play along with the CCEE team, link your card up on the blog, using Mr. Linky at the bottom of the post.
