TOTALLY TOOLS WITH A FAUX METAL BACKGROUND!

The faux metal background is a quick and easy way to add lots of texture to your card and give it a unique look. AND it is so easy to do!

For this card I used the Totally Tools Stampin' Up! stamp set. I embossed my hammer on both Real Red card stock and some Brushed Silver card stock. Then I cut the images out and layered them on top of one another so the hammer had a silver head and a red handle.

For the Faux Metal Background, I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to 5 1/4" x 4" and then I also cut a piece of tin foil (regular ole' tin foil) to approximately 5 3/4" x 4 1/2" and I glued the tin foil to my piece of Whisper White card stock and then flipped it over and folded the "excess" tin foil over the back of the card and glued it there also. Then I just took my piece of tin foil wrapped Whisper White card stock and put it inside my Houndstooth Embossing Folder for my Big Shot and ran it through the Big Shot. I told you it was easy!!
