Hello everyone, it is the 4th week of February and over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge, it is a choice between a Technique or Stash Challenge. So for her last challenge for this month, Netta has chosen –
So we are going to be able to pull out our foils. I know that you have them lurking in your stash somewhere. You can use any type of foil – craft foil, go press foil, deco foil, hot stamping foil, gold leaf foil or even foil from your kitchen (some call it aluminium or tin foil). I you want to use foil from the kitchen … here is a video to help you with that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZkC_axbeUE
For my card, I used kitchen foil. I put large sized double-sided tape onto a sheet of cardstock and then layered the foil over this and smoothed it out. Then cut off the access and ran this whole sheet through my Gemini Jnr Machine with this embossing folder. While I had my Gemini running I also ran through a scallop circle die and plain circle die, then stamped this sentiment on the circle and mounted this on the card. This was done after I had run a black pen around the words on the embossed panel just to help the words to stand out a bit better.
Thanks for coming and looking at my Design Team project for the latest challenge over at the 52CCT challenge. I hope that you will come on over to our blog and participate in our challenge. Before you depart from my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.
Until my next post,
Find your next great read.
