Today I’m bringing you a fun technique which will make your cards look amazing. The Faux Metal Technique is quick and easy to do with almost any stamp image. Today I have used it with a Christmas card and quite like how the Silver turned out.
How do you like the little star in the corner? Today’s video shows you how I make the card as well as how to do the technique. So watch the video and see how I do this technique.
