Anyhow, the silver one is the subject today. A sort of embossing tutorial. With the help of my Cameo of course! (Any excuse to use it will do!)
So, I made a gift tag stencil as a base. Cut the stencil out of a document holder - it's one of those things meant to protect a sheet of paper, made from acetate and dirt cheap. Cuts on Stencil setting, blade at 3 or 4. It cuts really well too.
Then I cut the shape only from a piece of card with a piece of my tape stuck on to that. I used an embossing tool with the stencil on the REVERSE side, putting the card onto a piece of craft foam to work on. I decided to add more dots manually afterwards. To finish off, you could back it with another cut out tag to tidy it up and make it easy to write a message on the back.
It isn't easy to get a good pic because of the light bouncing off of it. The same technique would make great fake jewellery or buckles for fancy dress or theatre costumes. I should probably have used a different font, this one was a bit too light but hey you live and learn! All I need do now is find some gold tape....:)
