***I do leave all the layers of foil when I put my card together. I have not had an issue with them separating. You can also use heavy duty foil, but I did not have any on hand.

Another Foil Card
I am having fun embossing with foil. Taking the picture of the embossed foil? Not quite as much fun! I have been using my Ott light when taking pictures for my blog and it is had to not get a huge glare. One of our final challenges for the Secret Sister exchange was to use something from around the house to create our card. I used the TAC set Hat's Off and stamped it with brown Memento ink and then colored in the image with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. The emboss the foil, I use a large piece of foil folded into quarters to give it some extra strength and then put it inside the embossing folder, trim away the excess and then run it through the the Sizzix. Stamp from The Angel Company, Cuttlebug paisley embossing folder, flowers from Joilee's, card stock from DCWV, image colored with Prismacolor pencils.
