This is for the 'Heavy Metal' Ways to Use it challenge. I cut down a piece of foil to smaller than card front and taped onto a black card. Then I ran the front of card through the cuttlebug with the 'Tiny Bubbles' folder. Fish are embossed and silver eyelets represent 'bubbles'.

Alum foil? I can't believe it. I was scanning the card info to find out what cardstock you used. Fabulous use of metal and I can envision those little fish inside a freezer that has the same texture as your foil.

Fabulous idea to attach the foil to a piece of cs first and then run through the cuttlebug - it will definitely keep it's shape by doing it that way....I tried just foil, no cs backing, and the it embossed great but any pressure on top of it flattens it out. Thanks SO much for sharing this nugget of knowledge - you solved my problem. And your card is fantastic!!! The tiny bubble folder is perfect for a fish card and I am hoping I can find one soon. I have lots of fish stamps to go with it!!
