The tin tile patina technique is the best of all things, quick, easy and gorgeous. I’m so excited that the tin tile folder will carry over to our new Occasions Catalog. This gives us so many more opportunities to create beautiful cards and projects, including this one.

You know how a piece of copper has that great patina when it ages?  This tin tile patina technique is similar. Start off with a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock and grunge it up!! I used copper embossing powder and staz on ink to give the piece all that texture.

My color combo is Basic Gray, Coastal Cabana and Pear Pizzazz.  Throwing in those hints of copper with the sprigs and copper trim really tied things together.

The dies form the Foliage Frame and Frosted Bouquet sets were used to die cut all the pretty foliage. And whatever you do, don’t forget to decorate the inside of your cards when you can.
