Fun, Shiny, Metallic! I’m super excited to share a paper craft: foil embossing technique with you today! Turn your cards into some foil paper art!!

Foil embossing provides an easy and elegant look to any paper crafting project. Better yet – it won’t cost you more than a walk to your kitchen!

Today’s quick tip video will provide lots of tricks on using household aluminium foil with your embossing folders for a unique and textured background. I’ll show you how to properly emboss, adhere, and layer the foil embossing technique for maximum results.

I’ve included pictures below, along with cutting dimensions and supplies for the completed card featured in today’s foil embossing technique video. I’ve used the brand new Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage stamp set and coordinating Classic Garage Designer Paper to create this simple masculine card. Whether for a birthday card, graduation card, new drivers license or Father’s Day card, the Classic Garage Suite of products is a must-have addition to your stamping stash!
