Just Because card

Hello. I hope you are well. It has been a bit chilly here today and I am sad to say goodbye to Summer but love Autumn colours and cosy nights crafting.

Today I am sharing a card as part of the Altenew AECP. The class that inspired my card was all about foiling without a laminater.

There are a couple of ways to add foil to a card. One way is to stamp images on to your card and use a bonding powder or embossing powder and a heat tool, then add the foil burnishing it on with your fingers or a bone folder.

Then there was the way I added foil. To start off I took a piece of white card and some double sided craft tape. I lined up the tape diagonally along the card.

I covered the whole card in even strips the cut off the excess along the edge of the card. I then removed the backing on all the strips. I took a piece of fancy foil from Gina K Designs and placed the card face down on to it. I rubbed all over the back of the card with my fingers then flipped the card over and did the same on the front. Then its time for the reveal. I carefull peeled back the foil to reveal the stripes.

To add some interest to the card I stamped a flower and two leaves from the Altenew Perfectly Perfect stamp set and coloured them with my Copic markers. I then fussy cut the out. I stamped and white heat embossed the ‘just because’ sentiment from the Altenew heartfelt sentiments stamp set on to black card and adhered it to my background usng a tape runner and used foam pads to add dimension and attach the flowers.

To complete the card I adhered the panel to a piece of black cardstock to add a black border then adhered this to a card base.

Thanks for dropping by.

  1. That foiling looks flawless! I think you need to add a couple more flowers to complete the look since the floral arrangement looks a little incomplete at this point compared to the sentiment label. But nevertheless, the card is gorgeous. Just keep in mind next time and take a step back and look at the project from a distance to see if it looks balanced or complete.
    Thank you for entering your beautiful work to the AECP assignment gallery.
