faux embossed tin tile card

 I'm scrapping in my kitchen again...

From my days sitting on the couch watching HGTV I grew to love tin ceiling tiles. 
It's masculine but also feminine, county but also urban
Wanted to recreate that feeling but keep it easy and the solution is ....
Aluminum Foil & an awesome embossing folder

(Just add aluminum foil WITH paper to your embossing folder and run it through your embossing machine.  You want to do it with the paper so the foil doesn't stick or rip when embossing)

 Also made some embellishments with felt and some Canvas Corp burlap & canvas sheet

GORGEOUS! Love this card.... funnily enough I was thinking about tin foil in the shower the other day and wondering if it was stable enough to emboss, thank you for answering my question! Perfect timing!
