I am thankful for my blog readers who post comments here, on Facebook, or by email and provide me with ideas for blog posts.  Today’s blog post stemmed from comments by readers Deborah and Danielle.  Ladies, this is for you!

Here is a video that demonstrates how easy it is to emboss regular kitchen / aluminum foil using a Cuttlebug and an embossing folder.  That’s right – you don’t need to spend money on expensive “craft foil” to achieve this look!  Which embossing folders you think would look nice using foil?  I like geometric shapes and semi-masculine emboss folders for silver backgrounds.

I think the best way to carefully adhere a foiled background would be to lay plenty of strips of snail adhesive (a permanent adhesive runner) down on the card JudiKins Diamond Glaze.  I adhered the background in the frog card with Diamond Glaze and I used snail adhesive for the motorcycle card.  Here is the card I made right after making the video for you!  This is the background piece I made:

Well, happy crafting, everyone!
