Metal Foil Card


Just a head's up. This is the first of two posts. 

It's been a little while! 

I have been busy in the kitchen preparing stewed tomatoes, salsa, pickled beets, bread & butter pickles, salsa and I have yet to do pears and applesauce. I'm not sure what happened...I'm fairly domestic by nature, but I don't like canning. 

Well...I didn't. 

It's like I've been bit by the canning bug! 

Soooo...I've just been pre-occupied with that. However, I did have to make a few cards recently, so I am showing you the first in this post.
This card was made by request. Someone saw my other metal foil card with a motorcycle on it and wanted something similar. So this is what I came up with. You can see my original one HERE.

And this is the inside:
Well, that's it for this one,

Hope you're having a good weekend!
