Try it Tuesday - Faux Tin Tiles


Equipment:

Big Shot, Multipurpose platform, two cutting mats, an embossing folder, cardstock, aluminium foil and adhesive.
Sandwich:

Multipurpose platform opened to tab 1, one clear cutting mat, embossing folder with cardstock placed in the middle and one cutting mat.

If the embossing folder has an intricate or busy pattern you may choose to open the multipurpose platform to no tabs so the embossing does not cut too deeply into the cardstock.

Steps:

Adhere the aluminium foil onto the cardstock, cut the foil about 1cm larger than the cardstock.

Emboss the cardstock as usual.

Trim the extra foil from around the cardstock or fold under and secure with sticky tape.

Cut the embossed cardstock in half. Adhere these two pieces onto a second piece of cardstock that is slightly larger. Leave a small gap between each square – this will look like the grout.
