Foiled Flowers

 Can you believe that you can create an amazing background using foil paper right out of your pantry? I could not believe it until I actually did it. What do you think of this embossed foil background? 

   Rose Wonder

   Basic Black A-2
   Real Red 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)
   Red Foil 2" Sq. (3)
   Foil 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 

   Archival Basic Black

   Die Cutting
   Dry Embossing

   Spring Flowers Embossing Folder
   Rose Garden Thinlits Dies
   Simple Flower Embossilits
   Basic Pearl Jewels

First, I covered a Whisper White panel in foil paper. You do not need to glue it down and the back of it does not need to be pretty. Do not pull the foil too tightly, so it does not tear during the embossing. 

I then placed this panel into my Spring Flowers Embossing Folder and ran it through my embossing machine.

I then adhered this panel onto the Real Red panel and then onto the Basic Black card front.

Next, I ran each of the red foil squares through the embossing machine using the Simple Flower Embossilits. You do have to do these individually, since the embossilit die cuts and embosses the image.

I stamped and die cut my sentiment, using the Rose Wonder stamp set and the Rose Garden Thinlits Die. This was adhered using my liquid adhesive, but you can prop it up using dimensionals. 

Lastly, I added some basic pearl jewels and adhered the other Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. Gorgeous foil embossed BG. I have used it for masculine cards and really love it with a diamond plate and adding some black acrylic paint. Makes a great masculine card with the added paint.

  2. Sally, I love the shine of the foil. Lovely card!
