I wish you could see this card up close. It is so pretty! Now, this is not a card I would make in big multiples but for those special people who appreciate them, this card is perfect. Mine is destined for Mom and Dad’s house.
The elegance of the foil is what takes this card up a notch. The silver foil sheet embossed with Coastal Cabana mosiacs is from the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper and the specialty in the name is this paper!
My color combination for this card is Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Whisper White with the Silver Foil. I also stamped in the same colors – Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Silver Encore inks. And as there is no greeting on the front of this card, it can be used after Christmas for birthdays, thank yous and more.
The finished size of this card is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". I layered a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock cut to 4" x 5-1/4" onto the front of the card and then adhere another 4" wide piece of embossed silver foil paper on top cut at an angle. The Coastal Cabana square is cut to 3" x 3" and the silver foil square is 2-3/4" x 2-3/4".
So, please leave a comment and let me know if you like the look of foil on your cards?
