Aluminum Foil Technique

Today I'm sharing an aluminum foil technique.  It's super easy and gives your projects a "Wow" factor that is perfect for masculine cards. What man doesn't like shiny, metal objects? 

Change the embossing folder and embellishments and turn it into a feminine card. This technique has lots of possibilities.

Here's how I did it:
  1. Cut a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil 3-3/4" x 5"
  2. Adhere to to Basic Black CS 3-3/4" x 5" dull side up (you can do it either way for a different look
  3. Use bone folder to smooth any wrinkles.
  4. Insert into embossing folder and run through the Big Shot
  5. Lay on scratch piece of paper and gently rub Black StazOn ink pad over foil, in circles until raised areas are coverd
  6. Let dry or set with Heat Tool & adhere to project
