Card Ideas: Ombre Effect on Craft Metal SheetsCard Ideas with Fun Techniques

If you search the Internet, you will find crafting techniques everywhere. I love looking at them, but then my mind gets rolling and I try to think on how I can incorporate this technique using Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets.  Sometimes it takes me a while to figure it out, but I will usually come up with a way to do it.

Techniques can be incorporated using Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets and my goal is to be able to teach fresh card ideas using techniques and craft metal sheets. Metal is fun to work with and even more when you can give it an unexpected twist such as I did in this week’s Dazzling Diva Challenge #15.

  1. Where did you find the oval frames you used on this card? I love everything about it. Just got my metal sheet order and gelatos yesterday and am ready to play. Thank you!!!!!

    • Judy,

      They are retired SU frames. Go to your local craft store and you will be able to find similar frames made by other companies. SU has a larger one in the clearance rack. Might want to check that one out, too.
