Festive Flurry Foil

Festive Flurry Stamp Set and Framelits

 

The new Foil Sheets are awesome! It’s like adding a mirror to your cards and projects. 

Although the foil sheets don’t photograph well (or at least, I couldn’t get it to photograph well), the finished look is so pretty. The sheets are a little costly so I am using them as accent pieces on my cards. A little goes a long way with this much reflection and shine.

For this card, I made a base of Island Indigo cardstock and added two pieces of Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper – a Smoky Slate piece cut 2" x 4" and a Pool Party piece cut to 1" x 4". The Silver Foil Sheet piece is also 2" x 4". When using 12" x 12" sheets of paper, I always try to cut to 2", 3" or 4" so there is no waste. For example, I can get 18 pieces sized 2" x 4" from one foil sheet. 

I embossed the silver foil sheet with the Pretty Print embossing folder and stamp a "Peace on Earth" greeting from the Greetings of the Season (Wood $19.95 128030, Clear $14.95 128033) in Island Indigo inkAnd for all of you who have been looking for a "Merry Christmas" stamp in script font, the Greetings of the Season stamp set has a beautiful one.

I stamped two snowflakes from the Festive Flurry stamp set – the second largest in Pool Party and the smallest in Island Indigo. I cut the snowflakes with the Festive Flurry framelits and added a silver foil snowflake between the two. 

Some Silver 1/8" Ribbon and a Frosted Finishes Embellishment in the center of the snowflakes and I was done.

I really wish each of you could see this card in person. It is definitely my of my favorite Christmas Cards I have made so far this year!
