Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card uses some of the new foilable die cuts from Julie Hickey Designs – having resisted for a while I am a real convert for foiling now! I’ve used the sketch from The Paper Players for my layout, together with the gorgeous colours from As You See It
I started with a couple of pieces of Stampin’ Up!’s new in-colours designer paper. I trimmed a piece of ‘starry sky’ to fit a 6×6 card blank and then cut a strip of ‘orchid oasis’ to sit on it. I was going to use a contrasting design at first, but turned the paper over to the same pattern and decided I liked the effect!
I foiled one of the flowers from the ‘fabulous florals’ set in white, and then watercoloured it with Distress Oxides in ‘picked raspberry’ and ‘dried marigold’. Once dry I glued it onto the card front.
I then foiled one of the new sentiments in dark blue and attached it using foam pads. A few co-ordinating Glossies finished the card off.
This card will be winging it’s way to a friend who’s feeling under the weather having just tested positive for Covid for the second time! Here’s a close up of the sentiment, so you can see the gorgeous blue sheen on it.
