What makes it special is that it has two thin layers of colorful aluminum foil with a sheet of paper sandwiched between them. This gives the material a paper-like sturdiness with the malleability of foil. It is ideal for making 3-D objects and is great for embossing and die-cutting.
I started by creating watercolor backgrounds for the cards with Color Bursts from Ken Oliver Crafts and then mounted them on black cardstock.

I used basically the same techniques to create my second card.

Before I assembled everything I decided to add texture to the mermaid's tail by running it through an embossing folder.
I sanded it a little bit to reveal the new texture and then mounted my little mermaid on the card. I also added an anchor which I had die cut from Silver Foil. (I actually adhered the foil to cardstock before I cut and embossed it because I was attaching a chain and wanted it to be very sturdy!)
Here's a closeup of the heat embossed sentiment with the rhinestones.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
