Birthday Card Using Foiling Technique

Hello friends, Emily here.  Today I'm sharing a card using Altenew's Peony Scrolls, and Super Script stamp sets.

First, i randomly stamped images from Peony Scrolls set... waited for it to dry or heat set.  Next, I stamped "friend" word in versamark and added HA embossing powder on top (STOP right here, do not heat the embossing powder).  I place a small piece of foil over, enough to cover "friend".  Then place my card in between a folded piece of parchment paper.  To set the foil, i used my Scotch laminator (so far I've been pretty happy with it).  I ran through the laminator twice, then gently remove the extra foil.  The result is really pretty in person.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Another brilliant card, Emily. The foil adds so much relief to the die. It's just gorgeous. And that background...It doesn't take over the focal point, and adds so much to your card. This is so beautiful. Great technique! Happy Sunday. Bev
