Father's Day card with Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder

Ok, I can't believe I am admitting this, but my husband loves Metallica.  I tell him it is angry music and he can't listen to it around the kiddies (ok, I can't stand it to, but it sounds better when I say it is cause of the kiddies!).  But I thought it would be fun to give him a different kind of Father's Day card this year.  I used Make-the-Cut to trace the Metallica image, then used the thin font Quiver from Lettering Delights to write the You Rock underneath it, and added some Chevron to the bottom.  I then used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder in the Cameo with a stylus (I do offer these in the Chomas Creations store) to emboss this design onto a metal sheet added color side down to a Chomas Creations embossing mat.  I set my pressure to 33, my speed at 6 and used a double cut to emboss twice. I then sanded the raised image and added it to a kraft colored card.  Voila!  Fun Father's Day!

Love it! I made a metallica card for my daughter's fiance.
There is a Metallica font available for download. Just Google Metallica font and it will come up.

LOVE IT!! I'm going to have to try this with my new Cameo and pen holder :-) Hubby is a HUGE Metallica fan and I would have NEVER thought to do this! Thanks so much for sharing!

Wow, that's pretty amazing stuff. I'm not familiar with the Cameo, but it certainly seems to have great versatility. My husband also likes Metallica, so he would really appreciate a card like that! TFS.--Pat N.
