Beautiful You

Hi friends! Happy New Year! Can’t believe 2022 is here already – last year literally flew by! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #57 – Anything Goes + optional Foiling. If you’re in for playing the optional twist, we’d love to see your project using a laminator/Minc machine, foiled cardstock, aluminum foil, etc. I used gold metallic foil cardstock and Deco Foil Rainglow Transfer Sheet for my birthday card.

I cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock. Using the Hero Arts Circles & Squares stencil along with Deco Foil Rainglow Transfer Sheets, Deco Foil Stencil Pal and Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo, I created the background for the front of the card and then die cut it with the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX Layers.

I used the My Favorite Things Bold Beautiful Die-namics and die cut the focal element from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock and Hygloss Gold Metallic Foil cardstock, piecing the red cardstock into the gold negative spaces. I added the word ‘you’ die cut from the gold metallic foil cardstock using the Sizzix Alphanumeric Tiny Type Lower Thinlits and adhered it to the bottom right.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and die cut it with the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX Layers. I embellished the panel with a leftover strip of the foiled panel on the front, a strip of CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock and a strip of gold metallic foil cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Waffle Flower Essential Sentiments stamp set in red ink and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! Foiling is so stinkin’ fun, and this rainbow foil is absolutely gorgeous!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
