Today’s card came from an experiment that just worked out. I had recently bought Deco Foil transfer gel based on a video from Jennifer McGuire. She demonstrated a dimensional foiling technique that looked interesting and I wanted to try it out. I admit that I was skeptical, as I had never been happy with any foiling technique except toner ink with a laminator. I was very happy with the resulting dimensional background and I wanted to turn it into a card. It ended up being a coffee card as my My Favorite Things Dienamics coffee die set happened to be sitting on my desk.
Supplies: Dienamics Tea Party die set, Hero Arts Diamond stencil, Decofoil Transfer Gel, Rainbow Decofoil, DCWV foiled cardstock, WeRMemory Keepers Words dies, Lil Inker Stitched Rectangle die, Copic X-pressit cardstock, Simon Says Stamp cardbase and Scor tape.
The challenge at Paper Smooches this month is to use gold. I had started to make something for this challenge quite some time ago but didn’t like something about all my attempts. I wanted to use gold foil and I find that if you use foil, then everything else on the card must be pretty simple or things seem to clash. After several too busy or clashy attempts, this one seemed to work.
