Add some shimmer and shine to your next mixed media or altered art project using the Metallic 8" x 8" Kraft Stock by Tim Holtz for Advantus. The package includes 36 foil kraft stock papers from the Idea-ology Collection. These papers reveal a kraft foundation when you emboss or sand them.
So excited about this product! Saw it advertised in a card-making magazine and HAD to have it! Have only made one card with it so far, but I love the way it ups the quality of the card with just a slight border showing! So happy I found this!
This kraft metallic card stock is perfect for a project I am doing for halloween. I needed to make the front of my card look like a prison cell with a door. I ran this through with Tim Holtz's Foundry 3D texture fade (and a little spritz on the back with water so you get a smooth 3D effect as opposed to a cracked effect). The back of this paper is kraft so if you sand the front the craft will come through. I then put black paint over the top of texture and then wiped it off to look like an old, beat-up,heavy metal prison door. It's perfect. He also has another pack with a metallic black that I put silver paint on. Both look and worked out really well, just slightly different effects. I will say that this paper is a little thinner than the Metallic 3 set with the black metallic paper. It also has a different finish. This one crackles more and the black is smoother. Neither was better or worse, just different effects. Just depends on what color or effect your are looking for. I did see a suggestion about keeping this pack of paper in a plastic baggie. Over time the bottom corners tend to curl back and not stay flat. I am guessing that the kraft paper on the back picks up moisture in the air. As far as I can see, it doesn't effect how it works, just makes it harder to store flat.
