Best Wishes

Hi Crafty Friends,

t’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Rebecca Ednie our challenge hostess for the month, finishes off the month with one last challenge.

Back to metallics for the end of the month. Use foiling on your project. If you don’t do your own foil, look for foiled patterned or mirror papers or embellishments like chipboard or stickers in your stash.

I had planned on buying one or two of the new Spellbinders Hot Glimmer Stamps for this challenge, but never got around to it as I couldn't decided which I wanted. When I finally sat down and look through my Hot Foil Stamps I already own, I discovered a few I purchased about 12 months or so ago and hadn't used, so of course I pulled those out to play for my card today.

I have the Couture Creations Go Press & Foil Machine which I have had for a couple of years, but with one thing or another I have been ignoring it recently ... so challenges like this are great.

For this card I used three hot foil stamps for the front of the card .... the swiss dots, the flourish frame and the sentiment. Each of these were foiled using gold foil.

I used an older embossing folder for the base of my card and layered all the foiled pieces using gold mirror card. 

To finish off the front of my card, I added two roses from Altenew's Rinnie Roses stamp set.

For the inside of my card I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set. I added two panels of gold foiled swiss dots to the top and bottom of the card.

The sentiment is another hot foil stamp that I have had for some time, it's a large sentiment so I used Hero Arts Infinity Rounded Rectangles die set to die cut and layer it before adding to the pop-up arm.

Here is another view of the inside of my card, so you can see the pop up part of the card a little better.
