"Tin" Foil Embossing

I finally had a day off, so I thought I would try something different before I began working on Craft Fair projects. I found an interesting technique on Splitcoast Stampers called Foil Embossing.

The card is done on a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch base. I cut a piece of white daisy card stock 3 x 3 inches and wrapped it in tin foil. OK, I called it tin foil....that is what my Mom used to call it. I ran it through my Cuttlebug using the snowflake folder. It worked really well and the foil seems to "mesh" into the paper. Close To My Heart card stock is great for this technique because of the weight of the paper. I had no worry that the foil would rip. The rest of the card is completed using a pattern for the Jingles Creative Basics pack, Juniper and Tulip card stock. Yes, you've seen the tree before as I used it in my post about how to use a blender pen. A little bit of Prisma Glitter and some edge distressing and the card was done. I think I will do this technique again. What do you think?

For Now, Happy Crafting!
