Thanks with Foil and Embossing

Saturday, December 31, 2016

Hi friends. I have two cards to share with you today. Before I get into the cards, I want to take just a quick moment and tell you all thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the love, comments and friendships that this blog has afforded. 

I truly appreciate each and every one of you and wouldn't be able to keep this blog up without each of you.  I want to wish everyone a very happy New Year's Eve and a most blessed 2017.

Now, onto my cards.  The first uses this gorgeous toner paper from Heidi Swapp. I added some teal foil on top and then ran it through my Mini Minc machine. I then die cut the thanks die cut from MFT's Twice the Thanks Die-namics twice, once with white and once with black card stock. I stamped the supporting sentiment from the Kind Thanks stamp set onto some vellum. I wrapped that around my card panel and then added the thanks die cut on top of that.

Here's a better shot of what the color actually looks like.

For my second card, I white heat embossed the PeonyGarden cling background stamp from The Ton. I then added some Abandoned Coral Distress Ink over it. I then die cut this panel with the Inside and Out Diagonal Die-namics from MFT. 

I added this onto some black card stock and added it to my card base. I used the same thanks die-namics that I used on the first card and added it to the panel. I finished off the card with some Tonic White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops.
