Wow !!!! tag # 6 and I am still impressed with Tim's skills. I have never used foil with an embossing folder. I have to say I LOVE it. When you sand off the color the silver comes out. Its looks amazing. Perfect for anything Christmas.
Once again however I did not have any of his supplies on the list. So I used 4 embossing folders I had, foil from my kitchen and acrylic paint and a sanding block. I got a great result.
I embossed the folders that looked "christmasy" (anything that has a swirl or tree), cutting out sections I wanted to use. They need to be glued raised side down on a tag (cut at 6 inches from Joys of the season). I then picked 4 colors of paint and painted lightly on a heavy coat of paint. Once that was dried I sanded off the top layer. The silver from the foil popped out. I love that look. I think I will invest in some foil papers. I know they will do an even better job than the foil from my kitchen.
The wreath was cut at 2 inches from Joys of the Seasons. I painted it several shades of gray and then green. I added dots of red paint for the berries. I tied it with some red and white yarn. I went around the edges of the tag with black paint. I did use clear embossing power over the finsihed tag. It gave the tag an even better shine.
This is a technique I will do again. I really like the look of the foil.
