The House That Stamps Built: Pick of the Week

Hi all, its my week for the POTW-Pick of the Week and I am going to
share an old technique that is quick and easy to make embellishments
to jazz up the simplest of card: Foil embossing.
You will need either heavy duty aluminum foil or you can glue two
sheets of regular foil together and then glue to a piece
of white card stock-liquid glue of your choice is best.
 Emboss with embossing folder of your choice. 
Then die cut embellishments of your choice.
I then made two simple black and white cards using Repeat Impression
and Thinking of You.   I then added my embellishments.
