Embossed Metal Card

In the April 2012 issue of Scrapbooks Etc., there is a Spellbinders ad (p. 9) with a fabulous layout and card by Lesley Langdon. Both the card and layout have embossed metal  and they are just gorgeous.  Although I don't have the same vivid colors as the layout (there was a beautiful blue), I knew I just had to try this technique.  I pulled out my embossing metals and my Fiskars Texture Plates and created six small embossed squares and adhered them to black cardstock.  I loved the final texture.  I thought about adding further embellishments, but my husband convinced me that it was fine without them.
This is a closeup of a couple of the embossed squares.
