I've never used metal on a project, so I was a little concerned about what I'd do for this challenge. I've been trying to not buy many new craft supplies, and I'd already blown my weekly "allowance" when it was time to work on this card. That's when my mind wandered to the aluminum foil in the kitchen...
- Card Base - DCWV Brights (A2)
- Papers - patterned paper from DCWV - Nana's Kitchen; textured cardstock by Bazzil Bling; non-textured cardstock by Recollections; Reynolds aluminum foil
- Cricut Cuts - rocket from Nifty Fifties, page 28
- Embossing - rocket with Cuttlebug's Spots & Dots; aluminum foil background with The Paper Studio's Mesh Texture
- Other - rocket on pop dots; inking with orange, green, and cyan Colorbox ink pads; sentiment stamp from Michaels $1 bin
My favorite thing about working with the foil was how great it looks when embossed. I squealed with delight the first time I ran it through the Cuttlebug and saw the result! Now I want to try foil in all my embossing folders!
I challenge you to head over to Celebrate the Occasion and participate in our male metal challenge. And if you don't want to invest in specialty paper, consider giving aluminum foil a try -- I was very pleased with the result.
