Big Shot Club for February!

I always have so much fun with my "Big Shot Girls"! We meet once a month and use as many Big Shot items as possible with at least 3 projects. I mixed things up a bit this month. The first card is masculine and what is special about this one is that we embossed aluminum foil for a background:

Look at the close-up below to see how cool the embossing comes out on the foil:
