Here are  my inspiration cards for you but before I show them

 though it is time to raid the kitchen for some tin foil. 
Oh yes tin foil is not just for cooking!!

Here I have used tin foil glued onto thin 160gsm card stock. The foil was cut slightly larger and when glued wrapped over the card stock edges. I then ran them through my big shot using various embossing folders. These are just two of the designs I picked and ready to be made up into cards

Here I have used the tin foil to create some die cut butterflies. Top one  was a smaller piece of tin foil glued and wrapped onto cardstock, diet cut (you need to do this first or pattern will flatten) and then placed in an embossing folder and run through my big shot.  The bottom one  was left plain  because I was using a fancy die cut . With the bits of left over foiled cardstock I  also cut some sentiments. 

1st card using
Forest Green/French Rose/Fuchsia
Flowers/ Frame/ Foil/Butterflies
On this card I have used some coloured sticky foil sheets that a friend sent me.
2nd card using
Forest Green/French Rose/Fuchsia/Flame/Frosty Blue
/ Frame/ Foil/Butterflies
On this card i have used tin foil put through an embossing folder and then coloured the butterfly design raised area using alcohol marker pens.  

3rd card using
Flaxen/Frosty Blue
/ Frame/ Foil/Butterflies
On this card I have used sticky backed foil sheeting adhered to cardstock and run through an embossing folder for the background . The sentiments and butterfly were made using tin foil using the method all ready described above. 

Hope i have given you some ideas for using tin foil.
