Foiled Again

Foiled Again

A couple of days ago I saw this neat idea in the March 2009 Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine for making embossed aluminum foil backgrounds, and I had marked the page to give this a try. It was such a coincidence that today’s Way to Use It challenge (WT212) on SCS also revolved around foil.

I glued a piece of the common kitchen supply onto Basic Gray card stock and ran it through the Big Shot with an elegant Texturz plate. The end result was just stunning (I hope the picture does it justice)!

The card was “dressed up” with yummy Riding Hood Red ribbon from the Dress Up package. I framed my sentiment with silver Hodgepodge hardware after sponging some Basic Gray ink along the edges of the designer label.

Thanks for stopping by!
