"Foiled" Challenge - Shine Like the Star U R !


I decided to try my hand at the challenge over at http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/ this week. The theme is "Foiled" and the challenge was to use some plain old aluminum foil from your kitchen on your card. This is what I came up with, and let me just say, it was indeed a challenge. Foil is hard to work with- It's so thin! I also had trouble getting it to photograph well.


The paper background is Karen Foster Design, and I used my Cricut to cut out the stars, tag and words. My Cricut didn't want to cut the foil (even after mounting it onto cardsotck) without tearing it, so I added the foil afterward and hand trimmed it. The eyelets are Making Memories, and the ribbon is bulk from my local craft store. I just love this ribbon. It's got an opalescent look to it, and it's not very wide. I like the delicate touch it adds. I added dimension with some dots used under the main star.


Thanks for the challenge!

You're insane! That turned out great! I can't imagine how tedious that was.

Great card, you're right about how tricky the foil is to work with, it tears so easily!
