Question brushed gold/silver/copper cardstock

Hi, has anyone tried the metallic cardstocks? Do you use them as the actual card or as layers? I have craft inks. Do I need to emboss when using the metallic cardstocks?

If you have some cards to share, I'd so much appreciate it.

Thanks!

Helen

I have the gold, but have only used it for layering. I like it, used it for my in-laws 50th anniversary picture decorations.

I personally have only used them for layering. However, just tonight I saw an awesome card that had silver embossing on top of the brushed silver. I think the main set was Bundle Up and it was uploaded today (11/19/05).

My daughter just made a christmas card with the brushed gold. She embossed a green tree right on top of it and it looks pretty good! I had not tried embossing on it yet so I was glad she did it. I have previously used it for layering as well. It gives it a nice touch!

here's a card I did for a stamp camp. Everyone really liked it. It is gold embossing on copper cardstock and copper embossing on gold cardstock.

The base card is Chocolate CHip.

The brushed copper is sooooo stunning and the gold/silver are nice. Paper is very thick and works well as matting or the card base itself. Never stamped on it.

I keep alot of the copper around, because it really pops a page for my heritage scrapbook.

since it costs so much more I basically use it for layering. It really makes a card "shine" to use it as a layer

Can you get it someplace other than SU? Do they sell it by single sheets, pack of 10's, or entire reams? Thanks!

I'm fortunate to have a Paper Plus close to me and they sell packs of the metalic paper (50 sheets) for $12.95 a pack.This paper is very good quality...wouldn't surprise me if it's the same as SU!. I just bought a pack of the silver but may go back and get a gold and copper.
So those in the Phoenix area PM me if you want the addy of the Paper Plus store.

The Stampin' Up! metallic card stock is a very high quality card stock. Just a touch used for layering can really jazz a card up. I also got a couple of card swaps from convention that used copper with black embossing on them. They were both stunning!
