Another reason to drink LOTS of coffee!

Yep...I looooove coffee.

If you've ever opened a can...then you've seen these:
 And of COURSE I have a nice big stash of 'em...JUST for paper crafting!
 
Which brings me to this weeks A Muse Studio Monday Challenge: Metal Embossing. Anything you have on hand works.  Heck...even a gum wrapper that looks like metal will do!  Just use your imagination...you'll figure something out.  Embossing can be done all sorts of ways.  Embossing folders, impression plates, templates or stencils and a stylus, score boards etc. etc. etc.  You get the idea.  All the challenge details and prize info can be found HERE.

I ran the coffee can seal through my Big Shot with the A Muse Studio Swirls Impression Plate.  Next I inked up the raised swirls with VersaMark and then heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  I love how shabby this turned out!  The sentiment on the tag is also embossed and embellished with a single red twinkle sticker. 
Seriously...this was so easy to make and would be an awesome design for mass producing. Yep...pattin' myself on the back with this one!
