Addicted to Stamps BINGO!

Morning everyone and welcome to our 2nd BINGO challenge at Addicted to Stamps. Lots of choice in this challenge, just pick any line, horizontal, vertical or diagonal and use it for your card, tag, ATC, canvas or whatever you fancy:)

For my card I have chosen the diagonal line of
Metal (the topper), Free (the ribbon) and Flowers.

The base card is A5 with the front folded back on itself. The metal topper is actually kitchen foil (did you guess?) folded in several layers and embossed in the cuttlebug. I can't get on with real metal, always end up cutting myself:) This technique works very well and is CHEAP! I matted it onto blue card and popped up on foam dots. I punched top and bottom and threaded organza ribbon through and attached a blue knot.
The flowers are SU Botanical Blossoms ( a two step stamp ) stamped initially in grey versamark and overstamped with Bashful Blue. A little glitter at centre.
I do hope you'll play along this week, check out the ATS blog for the amazing cards that the rest of the DT have made:)
Good luck!

Great idea to use kitchen foil - I always worry about sharp edges on the real metal. Great choice from the bingo card.

What a great idea to use foil! I would never have thought. I love the effect it gives your card and your stamping is divine!! xx

Wow I never would have picked that you used good old foil. I spotted the metal and thought 'gee wish I was that brave' lol. It is very effective and and looks terrific on your card with the stamped flowers. Great choice on the bingo card Val. x
