This week let me introduce you to Add a Little Dazzle. If you haven't been to see them yet, you're missing out. :) Wish I had known about them long ago.

They are sponsoring our 'ADD METAL' challenge this week over at the 
Pile It On Challenge Blog.

I got several gorgeous colors of metal sheets to play with but what really caught my attention was the fact that they were all silver on the back side. (So, it seems, no matter what color you get, the chances are the back is silver. Like two sheets in one!) I cut out the tie three times with my Cricut and the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. I glued them all together, creating a thicker version of my tie. I embossed my metal sheet first, with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. Then, carefully, I molded my metal around my tie template. I added some popdots (of my own making) to add some depth. The sentiment is from a Winnie & Walter set called 'Leave it to Dad' and is heat embossed with silver Stampin' Up embossing powder.

On the inside, I used SU's Teeny Tiny Wishes (Happy Father's Day) and another sentiment from the Winnie & Walter set as above. Both are embossed, again, the same as above. My kids will sign the card with white gel pen or white crayon. They are really into that right now. :)

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
