HINTS, TIPS, and HOW-TO's:
- I used my Cuttlebug and the above card is my Steampunk embossing folder which was then "inked" with a stamp pad to accentuate the embossing
- aluminum foil actually cuts with your paper cutter as long as the blade is not a worn-out blade but instead one that is faily new
- depending on the amount of embossing that your folder is depends on how many layers of aluminum foil - I recommend at least 2 layers of foil - below are samples of 1-layer, 2-layer, and finally 3-layer
- isn't fantastic how amazing they all look with something that everyone has in their house at little or no additional expense???
- you need to glue your base that the aluminum foil needs to be adhered to first. I find that using my ATG gun works the best and holds it best with little or no tearing
- if you are adhering anything to the aluminum foil, I find that puff-dotting my item to the foil works best
- aluminum foil gives a great look to sew many different style of cards such as the "steampunk", but also for Halloween, for mirrors, along with shabby chic - the only restriction is your imagination!!!!
- reminder that it is fragile and treat it as if it were tissue paper!
