Loll Thompson has the most amazing and creative burnt copper cards in her gallery. A while back Loll so generously sent me several burnt card front size sheets. I tried using a dry embossing folder for the 1st time on this piece of copper. WOW!! What a gorgeous effect. Because of the Vine Street design the piece was perfect for using my stylus and foam pad to add a slightly accordian fold, which added even more dimension. A gorgeous effect.
I had a piece left over so I added a layer behind my flag sentiment. BTW, my craft scissors were great for cutting the copper. Also Tombow liquid glue really attaches the copper and CS together well.
I did add 2 layers of dimensionals to the die cut window layer because of the extra dimension to the copper layer.
I am so happy with the results and think Loll will be too :-) TFS the copper and your amazing talents my friend.

Beautiful card Nancy. I love embossing folder you've used - just so pretty and really perfect for the copper. Adding the gentle accordian fold is so creative ... such great dimension. Thanks for the shout out, my friend! :)

WOW!!! Nancy, this is just outstanding! I love the embossed copper piece, with the raised window frame and extra dimension you added! I've always admired Loll's cards and her copper ones are extra special!
