I’ve got some fun birthday cards for dad using the easy foil embossing technique that ties back to my video and blog last Friday; if you missed that click here

Foil embossing uses household aluminum foil and your favorite embossing folder to create a unique background for this birthday greeting card. And the foil embossing technique can be used for all kinds of cards, not just a masculine card like I’ve created here.

The Geared Up Garage stamp set is definitely one for the guys. The coordinating Garage Gears dies include cogs, gears, labels along with dies to cut out the images in this stamp set. Geared Up Garage is also offered as a Bundle (stamps and dies) at a 10% savings. You’ll find these products on page 43 of the new Occasions Catalog.

I’ve got lots of tips for the foil embossing technique in today’s video that include matting and adhering. I’ve included pictures of the completed card, cutting dimensions and supplies below the video.
