I saw this card by Melissa Kerman on Pinterest when I was looking for different techniques to do for my class.  I thought, oh my, I could never make that.  But, I did!!!  The technique is called tarnished foil and it is not difficult to make, just quite a few steps.  I found a wonderful step by step tutorial on splitcoaststampers.com by Melissa on how to make this card.  Click HERE for her directions.  

I don't usually send you to another website for directions, but she does such a wonderful job and has a video with it.  I haven't started doing videos yet, and with this card I think it is very helpful.  

Here is another picture of two of them that I made and neither one of them is the same.  They will all look just a little different, which is something I like.  



To make the card you will need the following products:

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 3 1/8 x 3 7/8

Soft Suede Cardstock #115318

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

  • cut at 1 5/8" x 5 3/8"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside of the card

Silver Foil Sheets #132178

  • cut at 3" x 3 3/4"

You probably have noticed a new product on this card.  It is the 1/4" Copper Trim that I wrapped around the card.  It is such a wonderful product.  

CoffeeandChatStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2We had a busy weekend with the grand Randall's.  There parents were gone to a wedding so we got to spend the whole weekend with them.  We had so much fun!  We went to the park on Friday night and I am not sure who was the bigger kid, the kids or Mr. Wonderful.  We came home and had our movie and popcorn and off to bed!  

On Saturday we went to Sam's and they found this really neat sidewalk chalk kit.  There are pieces that look like ice cream.  Yum! They had a lot of fun playing with that and getting all dirty.  Isn't that what kids are suppose to do?  

For lunch we went to see Erica at work.  They thought that was the best thing ever,   Blysse, the youngest, had a hard time figuring out why Erica couldn't carry her around.  

On Sunday we took them to church with us and it was a special day for another one of my daycare angels.  Knox was dedicated!  What a perfect day, Mother's Day to do that.  He is just so precious!  

Here are some pictures of our fun weekend.

Here is the picture of the sidewalk chalk.  It is so yummy looking, so good that the kids wanted to eat them.  LOL
