HI, This is the most beautiful card. I have just purchased a cuddlebug and have not even used it yet. I did not realize you can use it on copper paper. I did not understand the heat of the paper and how you did the flowers. can you explain? Thank you

What I did was use thin copper sheet, purchased at Michael's, comes in a roll, cut it to size, used the embossing folder from Cuttlebug, then "carefully," holding it by a pliers, I heated it over the gas stove. Copper turns all kinds of beautiful colors when it's heated. Heat until desired look.
I embossed the flowers with copper embossing powder on black paper then colored in the flowers and leaves with powdered pearls mixed with gum arabic and water, which gives it a consistency of paint.
