foiled birthday

Hello and welcome. Today’s card is for my bonus grandson aka, favorite busser. While perusing Pinterest I saw several cards with a similar layout and using foil. I tried embossing the foil but that didn’t go well for me, so I just crumpled it. After it was all put together, I thought if I used a black stamp pad and a brayer it might soften the glare of the foil. So, I took it apart, used a different piece of foil, brayered it and was happy with the result and put it back together. Center square is Stitched Squares by Die-namics with sentiment printed on the computer. Square is popped up.

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate you taking the time. Have a great day and stay healthy & safe.

  1. I really like the sketch. The brayered foil turned out great. I would have never thought of doing that.

  2. How cool to get the look you wanted by using your own technique. And too fun to get a bonus human of any kind.

  3. This is a great card Gerry! Love the look you got with the foil.
    I’ve found that if I adhere the foil to card, then emboss it, it works.
