Sharing the lasted how-to that I did for the Ranger Inklink yahoo group!
Ranger Products: Inkssentials Surfaces Metal Foil Tape Sheets, Tim Holtz Distress Stain, Claudine Hellmuth Studio Mini Acrylic Paint Sets, Inkssentials Surfaces Artist Trading Cards Kraft and Canvas, Archival Ink.
Other Products: Invisibles cardstock, Baker's Twine, Ribbon, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Cuttlebug
Step 1: Run the Foil Sheet through the Cuttlebug using the embossing folder.
Step 2: Using the Studio Paint, enhance the raised surface of the embossed Foil Sheet and set aside to dry. Ink the edge of the canvas trading card with Archival Ink and the edge of the Kraft artist trading card with Distress Stain. Attach the painted, embossed foil to the trading cards.
Step 3: Cut the Invisibles cardstock to size (I used 5 x 7) and cover with the Distress Stain. The varnished areas of the cardstock will resist the stain. Attach these to pre-made card forms.
Step 4: Add ribbon and baker's twine to the cards then adhere the trading cards. I left an area to put a sentiment later when I decide who or what occasion I will use these cards for
Here is another view and a close up!
Thanks for looking!
