Foil It Up!

I am working with leftover scraps and so this card is one I did with some of them. I used Oxide Distress Inks and regular Distress Inks and also Gina K. Designs Red Velvet ink. The sentiment was from the Holly Jolly stamp set by Gina K. Designs. And, the Fancy Foil used was Turquoise Sea and the striped design from the Foil Mate Stars & Stripes set. The Fancy Foil and the Foil Mates are from the Gina K. Designs line.


The holly design was done using a Tim Holtz stencil from Collection 19. I not only stenciled the background but I also stenciled extra portions and fussy cut them out to place along the sentiment. My layers were all cut out with the Cottage Cutz Double Stitched Rectangle Die. And the last step was to add red rhinestone gems to the holly and pop them up along the upper left side and the right lower side. 

This card will be used as an entry in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge which is entitled Foil It Up!

Thanks for the visit and lovely comments and I hope your week is off to a great start.

God bless,
Verna
