Whew! This challenge stumped me!
I knew I could use a metal charm, but I've had metal mesh and sheeting sitting around for a long time. I knew it was time to FINALLY use it!
I had such a difficult time coming up with a design. I eventually just pulled out all my dies and started thinking. I die cut a few things, but nothing was working for me. After lots of tinkering, I came up with this card. I decided to add some texture to the metal with embossing folders and my paper crimper.
Finally, I had my card all put together...now time to glue it. I tried every adhesive I own. Nothing was sticking. So, I had to pull out the hot glue gun. UGH! I burnt my fingers and I think I'll be pulling at glue stings for the next several hours. :) I even had trouble getting the hot glue to stick. Things kept slipping and sliding around. It's glued now--of course after it's on there crooked.
I hope the rest of your day is not as messy as hot glue. OOOO! That almost sounds wise. :)
