Industrial Technique from THCC 102 & Texana Designs Longhorn Santa

Here is one of the tags I made in Tim Holtz' Creative Chemistry 102 online class day one.  The technique is called "Industrial" and it is created by embossing foil cardstock or foil tape and then aging it with distress paint.  For the tag I used the movers and shapers tag die cut and then ran it through a 5x7 embossing folder from Cricut's Heritage set.  I popped the santa longhorn and stamped a simple greeting.  

Below are two cards I adapted from this tag. I wanted to see the difference in using Foil Cardstock and Foil Tape on cardstock.  If you look closely you can see the embossing on the right (the tape) is more crisp.  I love the way both of them turned out and would not want to choose a favorite.
