enjoy every second

Hi everyone! Top of the morning to you! Here’s wishing you a wonderful week ahead! Our February challenge is underway over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #55 – February Anything Goes! I created a fun slimline birthday card featuring some foiling! My go-to slimline size is 9″ x 3-3/4″ because I feel that it fits better in a #10 size business envelope.

I pulled out the Mini Minc and some red and gold foil. It has literally been ages since I played with this machine! There were several tiny spots that didn’t take the foil on the large ‘enjoy’ element (perhaps because it’s so old? hmmm…) so I dotted on some Crystal Drops to cover those areas. It looked so neat that I dotted on more Crystal Drops in various sizes until I achieved the look I wanted! Hey, there’s more than one way to skin that cat! Wait a minute… we don’t skin cats here but you know what I mean, lol! I created the background with some red and white striped cardstock layered on red cardstock. I adhered the ‘enjoy’ element on red cardstock layered on gold foil cardstock. I added a small layered foiled flagged sentiment and some large white flat-back pearls.

I embellished the inside panel with strips of red and white striped and gold foil cardstock, along with a layered foiled sentiment, and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more look… really happy with this despite the initial difficulty I encountered with the foil not ‘taking’ in several spots. My work-around prevailed, lol!

  1. Well! I wouldn’t have known it was not meant to be, the “holes” in the foil are so even it looks part of the design Leslie and it’s Gorgeous. Super design and great insert as always.

  2. It’s a grunge enjoy! Seriously, I would have assumed it was meant to be that way had you not said something. Are you getting a new minc now? I just have a cheapo Scotch laminator, never yet used. The only 2 times I have foiled have been with that icraft transfer gel and it worked perfectly. Anyway, great save and love all the bold color choices. Love a card that stands out! xoxo
