The Open Sea Stamp Set with the Aluminum Foil Technique

Hi Friends, I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!

Yesterday I shared a card made with the painted Aluminum Foil.  Today’s card was made with Aluminum Foil, but was not painted.

First I glued the foil to a scrap piece of paper that was cut to 4″ x  5-1/4″ all over with the  Aluminum Foil TechniqueAnywhere Glue Sticks.  This technique should always be made using glue sticks.  The edges of the aluminum foil was folded over the scrap piece of card stock and adhered with the glue stick, as well.

Next, it was run through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with an embossing folder and adhered to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Whisper White panel was stamped with images from the Open Sea Stamp Set in Crumb Cake and Basic Black Ink.  It was layered on another piece of Night of Navy Card Stock and added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set. (I love this set because it has a greeting for almost every occasion!)  It was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White in Basic Black Ink, cut out with the Word Window Punch and layered onto a piece of Night of Navy that was cut out with the Modern label Punch.  These two punches work so well together!  It was adhered to the card front with Dimensionals.

Visit my Online store to purchase the items I used to make this card, except  for the Aluminum Foil.  (I buy my the Aluminum Foil at the Dollar Tree.)

    What embossing folder did you use?

    • Terry Sudduth Duncan says:

      I used an old Tim Holtz embossing folder, but the Alphabet Press (130916), Chevron (127749), Argyle (127750), Houndstouth (123134), or the Stipes (123128) embossing folders from Stampin’ Up! will work just as well!
