Fun with Foils

Hi everyone! Katrina here with you today, showing you a few more colour combinations with the fabulous colours in the Hot Foil range. Once again, a three colour combination really gives you a great effect. Playing with the same Hot foil stamp, I have foiled on both cardstock and ribbon, combining the pieces to create an alternate design to show that our options are endless to create with.

Pinks, Golds and Silvers combine for this card.

                                   The light catches it to create so many pretty variations.

Separate the flower petals and attach each petal to a layer of Die Cut n bond. Cut to the shape of the petals and peel away the outer layer ready to foil.

Cut small portions of the Pink and Gold Mirror foils and Silver Iridescent Foil. A little goes a long way. Dab and lift in a random patterns over the 3 petals until you achieve the desired mix of colour.

Layer your petals once again and slip a few stamens through the centre to recreate your altered flower.

Create a 14cm square card from the Matte Gold Lines Mirror Foil Board. Cut a 12cm square from the Cherry Cola card and a 9.8cm square from the Snow White card. Run an even layer of double sided tape around the edges and apply the same dabbing technique as with the flower using the Pink, Gold and Silver Mirror finish foils.

Cut a 10cm square from the Matte Gold Damask Mirror Foil Board. Hot Foil onto the square with the Curling Motif Hot Foil stamp in Silver Mirror Foil. Cut the panel down to a 9cm square, cutting around the circular ends to create a feature. Use the central design of the Hot Foil stamp, foil onto the length of ribbon with the Gold Mirror Foil.

You will now have your card base, edged pink layer, edged white layer, Curling Motif on both card and ribbon and your flower.

Attach your pink layer flat to the Gold card base. Attach the Curling Motif to the white layer. Turn your ribbon horizontally and wrap over the edges, creating a full medallion, as pictured and secure on the underside. Attach this layer with 3d foam to the base, then attach the flower, centred on top.

                   Thankyou so much for looking, until next time, Happy Creating!! K x
