Another of my favourite crafts.
These little pieces of aluminum will help you create greeting cards, picture frames, candle holders and much, much more. Aluminium metal embossing is a wonderful product. It allows you to emboss light, medium or heavy weight aluminium and attach it to among other things;

You will need(depending on your project);
Rubber mat or soft surface Tracing Paper Brass Stencil Sellotape Stylus Rubber end of pencil Stamps Punch Scissors
Instructions: Place the metal on either a rubber mat or soft surface. Emboss, trace or draw your design. You may even wish to tape a pattern onto the sheet. Lightly trace the pattern onto the sheet with a fine point stylus. If you want a puffy design, flip the metal over and re-trace around the lines several times. Emboss into the puffy areas using a blending stump or the rubber end of a pencil to really achieve the depth. To add texture to the background, etch lines, dots or circles using a fine point stylus. You may also use punches, stamps and embossing/die cutting systems. Once you are happy with your design, cut out and attach it to your chosen project.
BEWARE OF SHARP EDGES!
