Metal Embellishments bring a card to life...

I have to be honest when Miriam sent me these metal embellishments and told me to use them on my projects for this month's challenge at Miriam's Crafting Supplies, I was thinking that there was no way I could use these. They are beautiful but I just don't use things like these in my crafting. Then I got them in the mail and look what happened...
I made this card a few months back and thought it was pretty enough but I kept thinking it needed something else and was just too plain. When I got the metal embellishments from Miriam's Crafting Supplies I thought why not give them a try and WOW, they really added that extra touch I was looking for.

Here is a close up of the metal embellishment on the corner. Isn't it beautiful?
Card Recipe:
Bronze metallic paper put through my Cuddlebug to dry emboss.
Dark Green Jute from My Life in Arts N Crafts 
Butterfly sticker from my stash
Metal Corner Embellishments and Half Pearls from Miriam's Crafting Supplies
All adhered to a A2 card

These metal embellishments are so versatile on projects from cards to ornaments to jewelry. Click on any of the words to see what I mean.

Have a great day!!!

  1. You're right--it is beautiful...but how much weight does it add to the card itself? There are just some cards I'd hate to send through the mail (extra postage or extra bulk that can get ruined via their machines) I'd want to make sure this is a presented in person.
