Faux Metal Polka Dot Punches

Today I'm showcasing a card that I made using the SAB set Polka Dot Punches and the faux metal technique. Shelli Gardner the founder and CEO of Stampin' Up! wrote on the front of the SAB brochure, "I love all the sets, but I don't think you'll be surprised that one of my favorites is the Polka Dot Punches set. It reminds me of the patterns that are punched into the metal on old pie cupboards..." From that moment on, I knew I had to try the faux metal technique with this set! I'm please with the results and have some other pieces I did at the same time that aren't made into cards...yet. But, I wanted to share this one because it also shows off the new Big Shot Texturz plates so well too. All products from Stampin' Up!

I hope you like it! The faux metal just doesn't photograph as well as I'd like but hopefully you can see some of the details. Have a great day!
