Embossing Foil!

Posted on May 1, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Welcome to Paper House! Bev here, and I am super excited to share a fun technique I borrowed from a friend. Get out your papers, some foil, inks or paint, and an embossing folder. We're making a super fun card! Foil Card- Bev Code

Let me tell you how to make it!

Decide on the size of the distressed metal accent you'd like to make. Cut the paper and then cover it with tin foil. Smooth everything out flat and tape on the back to hold it firmly in place.

Now emboss it with your favorite embossing folder.

This is what it looks like after.

Add paint to your foil, then rub off excess to get as much or as little color as you like.

My base for the card showcases the ColorWays™ collection. Add your foil accent to any project. I am making the card above, and I added all the extras to finish it off.

Up next is another card. Paper House's color combinations and amazing accents make cardmaking so fun and easy. On the background, I added some paint and gesso and used some stencils. I embossed and used ink stamps as well. I punched out chevrons using a hexagon punch and added amazing accent and sentiment stickers. A few buttons and this card looks great.
