Hope you are having a wonderful time with you family. I have to tell you, this is the coolest technique I have seen! I am out of foil but will be stopping by the store after work today to pick up some and try it. Thanks so much for sharing this fun technique with us. You are the best. Happy times! Susan

Kiaora from New Zealand Dawn. I just love love love your vid's. This technique works best for me if I glue the foil to the card first and then emboss it when it is dry. I cover the card in glue then use my roller and Hey presto! No air bubbles!! Teeheee. Keep up the awesome work doll. cheers Anita x

After I stick the foil to the cardstock, I use my dies to cut out fun shapes, swirlies and stuff. Pretty cool! Glad you are having such a great vacation!

you have GREAT ideas

WAY COOL! Thanks for figuring it out for us!

Could you attach the foil to the cardstock before you run it through the Big Shot to avoid getting air bubbles?

Hi Dawn,
I am becoming a fan of your ideas and love your work, I also work in foils on a large scale. I have a foil finish with a Trompe Leoil technique for small accent areas click on my name and have look and tell me what you think.....

I loved the look of this technique, Dawn, so had to give it a try. Of course, I had to change it a lot 'cause I don't own a Big Shot or the Texturz plates, but it came out great! You can see it on my blog. I love all your videos and learn so much. Thanks for all you do.

Hi Dawn, lovely video.
I only have a Cuttlebug and I find gluing kitchen foil to card stock before running it through with an embossing folder stops it from tearing and I don't squash the texture when I attach the foil to my cards :) I like Suzi's comment about gluing to card and die cutting shapes out... I will have to try that next too.

Terrific, Dawn! Beats cutting those soda cans and gives the same effect!

WOW!!!!!!That's GORGEOUS!!!!! :) Makes a SUPER Masculine card!!!!! Thanks Dawn!:)
