Leftover Card

If you got a post showing two cards earlier I had to split them up and remake into two posts in order to enter this second card into a challenge. So please forgive me if you saw this before.

This is a card I made from the leftovers of the card previously posted using foil. I accidentally threw the die cut double sided paper onto some glitter paper and when I saw them laying together I had a light bulb idea on how to use both together to make a foiled glittery design.

I added the sticky peeled off paper to the foil and then peeled off the top layer and on that I added the foil which is a pretty shade of red. I embossed the sentiment in gold which is from the Gina K. Designs The Simple Things set. This panel was then added to a base card of Gina K. Designs Ivory card stock.

The Cheery Lynn Designs die used:
Small Leaves #1 D133

This will be entered into the Dies R Us Challenge-Thankful for Nature (Thank You or Nature Based).

I am so tickled that I found a way to use foiling without the purchase of a laminating machine and a printer. And even more happy that some long lost foil papers are finally seeing some love.

Thanks for all your lovely comments. Have a great day.

God bless,
