Yellow & Blue Birthday with Foil

            I keep adding items to my sale pages, so you might want to take a look.

You may remember that I'm a huge fan of foil.  In fact, that was the theme for one of my Winnie & Walter Leading Lady posts.  But I just learned something new, thanks to Jennifer McGuire's video.  This time I didn't wait long to see if I could foil a heat embossed image using a laminator.  My first attempt with a single flower came out nearly perfect & I'll post that card soon.  My next try was using Impression Obsession Sketched Roses CAC.

 
I clear embossed the roses on Lemon Tart cardstock & then ran it through my laminator with teal foil.  It didn't come out perfect, but I thought it was worth using. 


I added color by brushing on Memento Teal Zeal & intensified the yellow cardstock with Distress Ink squeezed lemonade.  A dark teal cardstock worked great for the mat & I used it to die cut the sentiment which is from IO Greetings Top Edgers.  The sentiment mat is a scrap of Lemon Tart cardstock, the words are brushed with a shimmer pen & it's attached with foam tape.  I added teal & yellow sequins for embellishment.  I'm entering Impression Obsession, Allsorts, The Flower Challenge & Virginia's Show & Share.
Blue and Yellow
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  17. Beautiful card Greta! I love the foiling! I watched that same video and tried 5 different images and they were all fails! Grrr... Ooh, well... hahaha
    I'm glad her technique worked for you though... Your card turned out awesome!!!!
    Since it didn't work for me... I went ahead and played with stencils and my Transfer Gel instead - needless to say... I did a ton of foiling this past weekend! LOL Lots of backgrounds to turn into cards! :) Have a wonderful day! :)
