Hi Friends! Happy Wednesday, and happy April Fool’s Day, if that is at all possible. Hope you all manage to make it through this day without anybody pulling some terrible pranks on you! I’m thinking I will play it safe and stay home today…. just to be on the safe side…. 🙂
This week is card week on the Therm O Web blog. For my project, I made a bright and happy anniversary card using the amazing new Flower Garden stamp set from Tim Holtz. And for fun, I accented my flower and frame with shiny, beautiful Deco Foil.
I am seriously loving this new flower set, and couldn’t wait to try it out. For this project, I stamped and water-colored the image on Ranger Watercolor Paper, and then applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink around the image using an ink blending tool. I die cut the piece using the Stitched Journal Die from My Creative Time, then die cut a matching frame using the MCT Hello Frame Dies. The frame was inked with Distress, as well. And finally, gold Deco Foil was added to a few select areas of the flower and frame. As you can see, the foil applies beautifully to stamped and inked areas.
This pretty paper is from BasicGrey’s new Tea Garden collection. The vellum is Maggie Holmes’ Open Book for Crate Paper. If you would like to learn more about applying Deco Foil, I’ve got a full tutorial on today’s card on the Therm O Web blog.
Hope you have a wonderful day, everyone! Stay safe! Haha
