There are all kinds of household items that can be used on a card to really jazz it up. Yesterday I made a card using aluminum foil. If you've never used it on a card, you'll be so amazed at how easy it is to use. You need heavy duty foil and just run it through your die cut machine in an embossing folder. Simple as that! I think this will be very pretty to use on Christmas cards too.
I made the one card for two challenges. The aluminum foil challenge is on Stamp TV and the color challenge is on the Outlawz. Here is the card I made combining the two.
I apologize for the quality of the photo. I need to work on that. :) I just ran the foil through my Big Shot in a Happy Birthday cuttlebug embossing folder. I can't believe how pretty and straightened out it looks after being run through. Just be careful with it because it will tear easily. I had to use a light green, an orange and a darker orange color for the color challenge.
I hope you'll try to use foil on your cards. On a previous blog, I distressed some newspaper. Next I'm going to use wax paper so stay tuned.
I hope you have a Terrific Thursday! Thanks for stopping by and please come back tomorrow!
