Foiled Die Cuts

I had a lot of small pieces of foiled papers so I decided to die cut some flowers and a frame to make a fairly CAS card design. I used all dies from Gina K. Designs for my design. And, the foiled pieces used are a combination of Gina K. Designs Foils, some from Deco Foils and some from an unknown source.


I used Gina K. Designs Gold Sequins foil for the doily frame and inside it I added a circle from the same die set of Gina K. Designs Ivory card stock to which I had stamped the sentiment from the Gina K. Designs Just Because duo stamp set.

The Gina K. Designs Flutterby die was cut from some leftovers to which I had used Deco Rainbow foil. And the leaves and one pink flower were also die cut from some off brand foil I had gotten years ago.. Each of the other blooms were from Gina K. Designs foil, namely Lovely Lavender, Wild Dandelion and Turquoise Sea. The Gina K. Designs Delightful Doily Die set includes not only the doily but those wonderful flowers and leaves as well.

The design was then finished by adding all of these elements to a base card of Gina K. Designs Ivory card stock and then adding some rhinestones to the flowers and the butterfly.

I am so glad you stopped in to see some of the latest fun I have been having. I hope to work on some more cards for the Cards For Little Hearts Card Drive which will be held July 1st to August 25th, 2017. On the side bar is a badge I added showing the website information. I hope some of you can join in and make cards with a winter theme for the kids who have heart health issues. Try to use designs that appeal to children. Please no Merry Christmas or Get Well greetings. I mainly am sticking with Winter Wishes or something similar to that. Thanks for all the lovely comments too.

God bless,
Verna
