Online Card Classes Sparkle & Shine Day 2: Foil

Online Card Classes Sparkle & Shine Day 2

Day 2 of Online Card Classes Sparkle & Shine was all about FOIL.  This exercise was a stretch for me.  I tried so hard to get into foil when Jennifer McGuire was demonstrating it last year.  I loved the look and elegance of foil. I had a Scotch laminator but just could never get the foil to “stick”.  I gave away my supplies and my laminator assumed its old role–laminating stuff.  So when I sat down to make this card, I was only able to find ONE piece of copper foil in my craft room in a pack of origami paper.  Not ideal. I still decided to give the technique a try.  I made my own foil paper by applying 1″ strips of Scoretape to the back of the 6×6 piece of copper foil. I then punched out my starfish for my starfish wreath.  TIP: keep cleaner handy so your punch does not get gummy from the Scoretape.  I burnished each starfish well after placing, and the starfish are bright and shiny.  I added some gemstones to further extend the bling.

Supplies: Simon Says Stamp Painted Summer and Painted Hello, Carl starfish punch, Distress inks (to watercolor background), Amuse Artstamps dotted ribbon, gemstones
