Somewhere around 10-12 years ago I purchases rolls of 38 ga. metal. I have no clue what I got them for although it may well have been what I am now doing. Playing with teaching myself embossing. This is a card for a friend. I have been trying to teach myself how to "puff" the metal, and then back it with Spackle so that it cannot be pushed in. Some people seem to use beeswax for this, while others use special filling paste - I figured quick dry spackle would work too The card part was covered with this amazing red paper that looks and feels more like a heavy silk. I had a great time playing with this card and there is one more birthday card to make today and then back to my regularly scheduled life.
