I got all my Father's Day cards completed today and again used images from the Gina K. Designs Wetlands stamp set. This time I chose some rushes with bird images for my main design and also a sentiment from the set.
The stamp for the main rushes image was used by applying Deco Foil Transfer Gel with a sponge brush to my stamp and then quickly stamping it to the ivory card stock. Once I had the image stamped I immediately washed it with soapy water and an old toothbrush. I set this aside to dry over an hour as it takes that long at least.
Once it was dry I foiled it with my laminator using the Amber Watercolor foil. I made the two cards up then with the positive and negatives from this design. I also used Cottage Cutz Double Stitched Rectangle Dies for framing using black, brown and ivory card stock.
Here is another view of the two cards. I hope you can see the beauty of the foiling in at least one of these two photos I have shown.
These are so much more elegant looking in person but I think you get the general idea of it. Thanks for stopping in and now I can start thinking about Fourth of July cards. Boy! This year is flying by so fast!
Have a great week!
