Hi everyone! Top of the morning to you! Here’s wishing you a wonderful week ahead! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! 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 a card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and created a background panel of 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. Sorry for the top angle of the photo but that’s the only way I could get the foil to not be black in the photos, lol!
I embellished the inside panel cut from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock 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!
