HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to the very dear ones that mow my lawn, fix my car, paint my living room etc....without them....what would one do?  I was surfing splitcoast and came across a cool technique.  My original thought was to go purchase some metal plates that you would find at AC Moore's or Michaels...but then I seen some cards that used HEAVY DUTY aluminum foil...thats right...ALUMINUM FOIL.  The key here is HEAVY DUTY.    I used the stampin' up texturz plates to make the 'diamond plate' look of metal tool box. 

I just had to try this QUICK n EASY card.  They call it a 'Z' fold card.  My FIL loves fishing so this was perfect card for him.

LOVE this stamp.  I found it at Hobby Lobby -- yet another great craft store -- you can find just about anything in there.  Our Hobby Lobby is right next door to Lowes - in fact....its you can send your hubby over there while you shop.  Whoever thought of that was a genious!  I have another stamp like this that say 'graduate'.  I have seen one more like this called 'soldier' but I do not have that... ~ YET ~ :^)

Last but not least..... this card I used a kwik kuts embossing folder.  Not my favorite as you can see it is not a true A-2 size - but it did the job.  I guess it would it be ok if you were to mount it to the base of the card.  I have a few of them.  Love the dog...looking so innocent.

Wow- who knew you could use aluminum foil in your die cutting machine?! I can hardly wait to give this a try myself. Your card- actually all your cards!- are wonderful! But that top one with the foil BG layer is really awesome!
