Faux Metal Technique

Today is my Monthly Technique Class and we're going to make the card above! This month one of the techniques is Faux Metal... yep, that is not a real metal embellishment... It looks real though, doesn't it? I used the skeleton image from the set Batty For You to make the faux metal shape. Here's a close-up:

To make the rest of the card, I cut out the white shape using the top Note die (still my favorite die) with the big shot. Then I stamped the Hello Doily stamp on it using pumpkin pie ink. The Happy Halloween on the bottom of the shape is from the set House of Haunts. Then I added some black satin ribbon across the middle of the card. For a finishing touch I also punched out a strip of black using the Lace Ribbon Border punch! I love how this turned out... do you think it's a little vintage looking?

I made another Halloween card using the Faux metal technique last year too. You can check it out here.
