Everything but the Kitchen Sink has an awesome Around the House Challenge to use Aluminum Foil. While searching for ideas on Google (literally typed in "shiny things") I came across an image of a tool chest. It then popped into my head to use the bolt stamp image which is a perfect go-to stamp for masculine cards. After stamping the image with permanent ink on the foil, I highlighted some of the threads with a white gel pen, cut them out and adhered two direct to the card base and the third to a scratch piece of cardstock which was then adhered with foam adhesive for dimension. Foil offers a different look to a card, but wow, is it ever difficult to photograph!
Supplies Used: Cardstock: (Kraft) Papertrey Ink (White) Georgia Pacific Stamps: (Bolts from You're the Man) Practicing Creativity Designs (Sentiment from Communique) Papertrey Ink Ink: (Jet Black) Stazon Other: (Metal Beads) Mark Richards (White Gel Pen) Signo Aluminum Foil
