Hi everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #41 – Anything Goes + Foiling! Remember, all of our challenges are ‘anything goes’ and we offer an optional technique twist each month to inspire you. The twist is not mandatory to play. This month the twist is foiling – so if you are inclined to play the twist, think Minc machine or laminator with foil, foiled cardstock or even aluminum foil!
I rounded the bottom right corner… I like rounding one corner for some reason, lol! It definitely adds interest! I used red foil cardstock for the sentiment and silver foil cardstock for the snowflakes on this card. I added a red gemstone to the center of each snowflake and several green glitter Gumdrops in the lower left corner. This was an easy design and could easily be mass-produced to send to a list of Christmas card recipients!
I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the striped paper and red foil cardstock used on the front. I stamped the inside sentiment in red ink and layered the panel on the green cardstock used on the front.
And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! Foil sure is fun to work with but it’s hard to photograph, lol!
