Welcome to the Father's Day Blog Hop.

We are a group of Demonstrators from around the world that love to share what we do. We hope that we will inspire you to create Cards and other Paper Crafting Projects.  Our theme today is Father's Day.  When i saw the Beauty of Friendship, I just knew that it would make a perfect card for a Father or special person in your life..

I decided to experiment with a technique and try it on the Copper Foil Sheets.  Originally I had tried this technique on Vellum with Stampin Blends.  And it worked!!!

Here is my card .  I will supply a shopping list below.

And here is a closeup of what the foil looks like using the Stampin Blends with Alcohol.
