Dahlia Hugs

Hi Crafty friends,

I recently acquired a Couture Creations Go Press & Foil Machine and of course I wanted to play with it. You are supposed to be able to use dies you own with this machine, so of course I had to try it.

For my first attempt I used the ModaScrap Leaf Pocket die and used this to foil a piece of white cardstock with gold foil. I really love how it turned out. I then added color to the cardstock using various greens and yellow inks.The foil resists the inks.

To decorate my card I used the Susan's Garden Dahlia ... I had one sitting around waiting to be used on a card. As I didn't want to hid too much of the background I added the flower to a circle layer which I adhered to the lower corner of my card.

As you can see I have kept the inside of the card simple by adding the sentiment "Love You" which could be for any occasion. To give the sentiment a little bit of sparkle I added Desert Gold Silk Microfine Glitter to it.

I've never heard of that machine - sounds cool. Especially if you can use items you've already purchased as well! Great card to show off the technique.
