Diamond Plate

For the SOS #190: Out of the Jar challenge. This week's theme is Out of the Jar and we need to use something that came out of a jar.   Almost everything on this card "came out of a jar".  The twine is stored in a glass jar, the brads are stored in a plastic jar, the Inka Gold is in a jar, and so is the Chalk Powder.  

I am always trying to find ways to make masculine cards to send to Operation Write Home.  I think this is a good one that a guy could send to a friend, a gal could sent to a guy friend, etc. 

After embossing the base layer with a Diamond Plate folder, I inked it up with Inka gold, then I dabbed the edges with the Inka Gold product so it would stand out more.  I think maybe I need to put a bit more on it now that I look at the picture.  Actually went back to add more silver edges, but it's already's just the picture that isn't so great!  The sentiment is stamped with VersaMark then rubbed with the chalk powder.
