Well, I spent a good part of my day and last evening foiling and finally later on today sat down and created a card with some of the items I worked on. Wow! My new laminator worked like a charm. I am very happy with it.
I recently got lots of the new Gina K. Designs line so I worked with items past and present from her foiling products. My monochromatic card is done in shades of green, namely Grass Green and Jelly Bean Green along with white. I foiled a plain piece of the new Grass Green Fancy Foils and then used a Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder to emboss it. I also did the pattern from Gina's Swirls & Flourishes with the Grass Green Fancy Foil and the saying which is from an older foiled design of Gina's.
I layered the embossed and swirl pattern together and then die cut them with Gina K. Designs Small Double Stitched Designs Rectangle Die set. And, I also made a layer for it using the Jelly Bean Green and the Gina K. Designs Large Single Stitched Rectangle Die. The sentiment was die cut with Gina K. Designs Small Square Double Stitched Design Die and then layered onto a die cut from the Gina K. Designs Large Single Stitched Square Die. These dies align perfectly together to give a nice little border around the smaller version used.
Next I added these all to a base card layer of white card stock. I also stamped in Grass Green and die cut two of the flowers from the Gina K. Designs Frames & Flowers set which is from the Frames & Flowers Stamp TV Kit. I popped these up in the lower left corner and overlapped the two previous layers.
The finishing touch was to add some green rhinestones to the edge along the upper right side of the card base.
I took several photos to try and capture all the beautiful foiling shimmer on the card. I know I sure like the look. I think this card could work for a birthday, graduation or maybe even a retirement card. Any occasion which makes for a happy day!
Thanks for sharing in the fun I am having with the foiling. I hope you come back often as I plan to try and do a few more foiled designs in the future. Thanks for all the comments you leave as well.
