Don't throw away that soda can!


Embossed-alcohol-ink-card

Yep, run that soda can panel along with an embossing folder for awesome metallic texture. Pounce on some alcohol inks and you can get really cool "patterned paper". :)


Embellish with chipboard, bloom, ribbon, tulle and button. And you are all done. :) So don't throw away that soda can!



If you like what I've used on my card, do consider joining the Zeus and Zoe design team. They are having a design team call right now. Some of my fave projects created this year were using the vintage goodies from Zeus and Zoe.  :)

How did you cut it and get such perfect edges? Surely not a trimmer? I'd be afraid to have tried the corner rounder on it too. It's beautiful.

Wow Yvonne, you never stop to amaze me with your upcycling stutt. This is soooo super cool Can I ask what machine you used with your enmossing folder. I have an old manual spellbinder, not sure I would use the Vagabond?????

This is ROCK STAR! I LOVE IT! I pinned it, always good to use up a soda can!

Helen Tilbury said...

It looks stunning & I love that chipboard - I'm too scared of cutting up soda cans - worried about the sharp edges!!

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH! I love this-- so much texture and blending of colors! LOVE the idea of using cans in an embossing folder (we collect cans to help raise money for our church building fund-- so we have lots in our yard that I could try this out on! LOL!)!! LOVE that flower-- love the tulle! LOVE it all:)
