Foil Cards with a Mother's Flair

The Matt Finish with Specialty Coated Paper

I loved the Sale-A-Bration item of Specialty Foils.  This week I have a series of cards using these foils and anyone who places an order of $50 or more with a host code will get 48 6 x 6 pieces of this amazing paper.  Until sold out. 

This Card is 8 ½ x 5 ½ folded
Back layer is 4 x 5 ¼
Gold and silver foil is 3 ¾ x 5

To get the matt finish take your ink pad and pat it on the specialty foil paper (like a smear) and with a paper towel, using a swirly motion, remove the ink from the foil paper. It's like polishing.  The paper is coated so the ink will come off on the paper towel.   I love the black (use Memento NOT archival) and the night of navy. 

I also tried it with Tempting Turquoise, Calypso Cora
l, Daffodil Delight, and then Emerald Envy.

Keep swirling for about 2-3 minutes to get an even matt finish.   

I used the wow Mother's Flair set.. I think it's been overlooked.  It's on the "last chance" list as it retires May 31 or until sold out.  Super cute and versatile. 

Stamp your image, die cut a scallop oval, attached together.  Place about 10” of thin gold ribbon on top of the card below the oval image. Stamp inside the card.  Stamp the envelope too. 

happy stamping - MaryKate
