Three For January - Card Two

Yesterday I introduced my new "Three For..." series in which I take one paper craft item and use it in three different ways.  The item being used this month is a Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folder called Framed Petite Labels.  
 
 
For today's project, I embossed a small sheet of self-adhesive metal made specifically for paper crafting.  The shiny surface really helps to highlight the beautiful pattern of the folder and you can even add alcohol markers or permanent inks to tinge the metal in different places.  Gold or silver cardboard also works well.  As you can see, I trimmed the metal right down to a small rectangle that focuses on the filigree and label.
