If I had known how simple this technique is I would have tried it so much sooner. How simple is it? Very!
I cut a piece of aluminum foil to the size I needed for the cardfront with my paper cutter. Then I ran the foil topped with the Whisper White cardstock through my Big Shot with the Finial Press embossing folder. And, that is it! Faux tin ceiling technique.
I purchased some Reynolds Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil for this card but it seemed to be the same thickness as the Shoppers Drug Mart "regular" aluminum foil I already had in my pantry. So, try it with whatever tin foil you currently own.
To finish, I added layered ribbons and a punched greeting. The "Happy Birthday" is from the Vintage Labels set, a free set for Sale-A-Bration. Yes, free!
