Metal and Brad Tutorial

Hello fellow stampers.  Today I am sharing a metal and brad tutorial with you which was inspired by a card I saw in the UK Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine.  My card measures 5" x 5".  I was lucky enough to find shiny bristol board at the dollar store in 10 x 14 sheets.  After I embossed and got great results I went back to purchase more packages, but they were all gone :(

Cut various sizes of your cardstock, or shiny designer paper.
Emboss your pieces
You can't tell where my white 5" x 5" cardstock is because I never thought to use a dark background when filming.  The gold metallic paper is placed along the edge of the white cardstock.  Next, start overlapping your paper using just a small amount of adhesive so you can move your paper if you have to.
Continue to overlap your cardstock, ensuring your pieces are flush against the edges of your white cardstock.
Use a poking tool to make holes in each corner of each piece of paper.  You do not have to add a brad underneath your stamped image.  Finish off your card by adding a brad to each corner of your stamped image.
