Project Description: Elevate your card creations by creating a Grungy Metallic Foil Card using Grafix Metallic Foil Board and Shrink Film.

Designed by: Tania Ahmed

Difficulty:  Moderately Challenging


  • Grafix Metallic Foil Board
  • Grafix Clear Shrink Film
  • Butterfly Die or Punch
  • Twine
  • Sentiment Stickers
  • Embossing Folder
  • Die Cutting Machine/Scissors
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Blue/Teal Acrylic Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Heat Tool/Oven
  • Rubber Stamp
  • Embossing Ink
  • Silver Embossing Powder
  • Clear Drying Glue
  • Black Card Blank
  • Paper Towel

Steps to Make This:

  1. Start by cutting Grafix Metallic Foil Board into 4” x 5.25” rectangle.
  2. Next, dry emboss by using an embossing folder and a die-cutting machine.
  3. Apply black acrylic paint with a brush to the sheet. Before the paint dries, wipe some of it off lightly with a paper towel. (This will give the appearance of brushed metal).
  4. Let the first layer dry completely, apply a second color of acrylic paint, and repeat the above process.
  5. Once the sheet is dry, buff along the high points of the embossing to reveal the metallic foil underneath.
  6. Then cut Grafix Clear Shrink Film using a butterfly die or trace and cut out a butterfly with scissors.
  7. Shrink the film in an oven or use a heat tool. Follow the Shrinking instructions on the back of the package.
  8. Apply embossing ink to stamp and stamp the shrunken butterfly. Liberally sprinkle with embossing powder, tap off excess powder, and heat the powder.
  9. Use a butterfly punch on the foil board and attach it to the shrink film butterfly with clear drying glue.
  10. Loop twine around the dry embossed foil board piece a few times and secure behind with tape.
  11. To finish off the card, attach to the black A2 card blank, add a sentiment sticker, and attach butterfly embellishment with glue.
