Tin Foil Anyone?

Yes, just that ordinary foil out of the kitchen drawer. Here is another design with the newest Saturday Evening Post release from Cornish Heritage Farms. I wanted to replicate the look of an old metal license plate....

I used my paper cutter to cut my foil to size first, then painted the whole thing with white paint. I masked off the center area and stamped my license plate image in the center. I rounded the corners then took my sanding block and gently sanded the edges to reveal the metal foil. I mounted it on plain white cardstock and added the metal screw brads and a sentiment. Way fun!
Here are the specific details:

This is perfect...I go nuts trying to make guy birthday cards.....I am the card sender for our church group this year and I am dreading the next few months as I have a bunch of guy cards to make and send. You have solved my problem! I will buy this stamp on payday.....and use it many times, I expect.
