I cracked up the first time I saw this chicken! I love her. She is just my style so I thought it was only fitting to emboss her in copper and make her shine! I also embossed the "chicken wire" as the background in the copper so when you hold the card and let the light bounce off of it you can really see how lovely it is and how much it looks like metal. Directions Below.
