step 2 – I had this tag that I stenciled for dimension and a blue background. I then added orange and purple mists to match my project colours.

step 3 – Create 2 small envelopes using the Coutere Creations score board. My envelopes measure 4×3″.
Foil the outside of the one envelope and then add some embossed detail.
Adhere the 2 envelopes together by sliding the flaps inside each other and add some adhesive to adhere.

step 4 – Decorate the inside of the envelope using some Ephemera.
Cut flowers out of white cardstock and add mists for colour. Cut extra smaller flowers out of patterned paper.

step 5 – Adhere the envelopes to the tag using double sided tape. Adhere the title (cut up) to the envelope with the die-cut flowers.
Wrap a ribbon around the bottom of the tag and add diamante to the center of the large flower.

Beautiful Handmade Foil Card.

You can create some amazing effects with the GoPress and Foil. Add some additional details to the foiling for an even more stunning effect!
For this card, I added some inking on top of the foiling with some amazing results.

step 3 – Remove the cardstock from the platform to reveal the hot foiled image.

step 4 – Stamp some wording onto a strip of cardstock using VersaFine Clair ink in brown. Trim the sentiment to fit onto the card.

step 5 – To add colour to my background, I misted the foiled piece with water and then sprinkled it with Walnut ink crystals and then misted again with water. Leave the ink to dry.

Trim the background to fit onto the front of a folded card. Add your stamped sentiment to the middle of the foiled image. Finish off the card with an inked chipboard heart.

The inking on top of the foiling looks amazing. You could also ink before foiling the card and it will also look great. The foiled image creates a beautiful home for the sentiment to sit on.
