Embossed Copper Flashing

I recently created a bunch of these quick and simple cards to send out as thank you's. 

I  simply embossed copper roof flashing using my Big Shot and Elegant Bouquet embossing folder.

The flashing comes in a 12" x 20 ' roll and can be found in the roofing section of most home improvement stores.  I purchased mine at our local Home Depot in Canon City, CO for approx 32.00 with tax.  It is a little expensive, but you get plenty of flashing to use in many projects.  It is easy to cut with scissors (I use my Stampin' Up! rubber and craft scissors) and easy to emboss using the Big Shot.  It has a cardboard backing, almost like heavy-weight paper that does not peel off the flashing.

The greeting was stamped on a scrap piece of flashing using Stazon, then punched out using my Word Window punch.  The punches will easily punch through the flashing as well.
