Foiled Happy Birthday

I created a Slimline card today and played with my Spellbinders Hot Foil machine.

Slimline Happy Birthday

I created this card for the Misti challenge at Split Coast Stampers. I started with the die in the Hot Foil machine. It has a learning curve and I am still learning. My die is quite shiny as I kept placing my foil wrong side down, even with the manual and having watched videos. I also learned that I need to use thicker paper as it works better. After the foiling looked good, I proceeded to stamp the idea that I found with Jen Cards and her slimline series. I used the Wild Blossoms set by Gina K Designs. I used a block to stamp the vine as I struggled with the Misti when trying to extend the vine and get it to match. The block worked fine, so I then stamped blossoms all over the vine. I am happy with the finished card. There will be more foiled images soon as I am planning to continue to create.
