This is so pretty. I love the way the blends react with the coated specialty paper and the foil inlay.
In fact 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.
See the cutting pattern below, this is cutting NOT assembling.
Take the 2 pieces large and 3 small pieces of foil, and color using blends the flowers and leaves with coral, cherry cobbler and old olive. Set aside to dry. Consider using a heat tool on low to help it dry.
Stamp the greeting from A Mother's Flair and punch with a 1 3/4" circle, punch out a 2" gold foil circle and layer together. I punched the gold from the background foil (as you won't see it after it's all layered up).
Now put the card together. Fold and burnish all score lines. Now layer the colored flowers on the gold.
On the main card based, layer the largest piece on the inside then layer the smaller flowered piece on the front.
Make the long skinny band, scored at 2 ¾ and 5 ½ Attach the longest part of the skinny piece to the front of the card (see photo on top) (just the first 2 1/8” inches) and then attach the last part of this skinny piece to the inside. Add your greeting to the front.
Happy stamping, MaryKate
