Yes, this is an older card but I feel bad for not posting any this week so it's what you're getting. This is a male Congratulations card, with minimal embellishment.
I started out by using a metal embossing plate to emboss the image on silver paper (which I can now run through my Bigshot, since I have the rubber pad, etc. It's so much easier than trying to see where the metal is under the paper, even with a lightbox).
I cut out some of the holes with a craft knife, stamped the sentiment in Top Boss watermark ink and embossed it in black. It came out a bit messy, but this is for a guy so I figured that would be ok. I put it on a black piece of cardstock, and used 2 black jewels for accent.
paper: Recollections cardstock, silver envelope lining (how's that for recycling?)
