Daily Special - Technique Day - Faux Metal Tag/Embellishment Using Foil

Click Here for the Tutorial

Today's Daily Special is Technique Day. Today's technique is "Faux Metal Tag/Embellishment Using Foil". What's this technique about? Well, you can create tags that appear to look like metal or metallic and you can do this by using foil, rubber stamps, and embossing powder.

Do you see the circle tag on the card to the left. . .well, I created that using this foil technique. I did the same thing with the flower tag on my second card. I used the remaining foil to stamp the bold butterfly. It looks pretty creased but I kinda like it. It gives the image a bit of texture which I think is a nice effect on cards.

You can also use a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder to emboss on the foil. I'll make a card using the embossing folder and post the card. . .I'll post it tomorrow.

I have a few more Blog Candy Submission to post and I'll post them tomorrow. I just wanted to add another tutorial that perhaps someone could try and submit for the Blog Candy. If you are interested in participating in the blog candy. . .Click here for the details.
