Hi crafters. The Simon says Stamp Monday challenge this week is about foiling. My mind was still thinking about paint from last week so I started by gelli printing a green and teal background with geometric stencils. To this I added crosses with a Kaisercraft stencil and metallic teal paint mixed with heavy gel gloss medium. I stencilled in different directions, and when it was dry I used a Versamark pen and a ruler to add lines to fill out the pattern. I added Ranger sticky embossing powder and pressed teal and green foil onto the hot lines. I couldn’t put it through a laminator to get better foiling as foil sticks to acrylic paint. In fact you can see some foil on the stencilled lines in places. I decided that the paper had a retro 50’s feel so I set it on a black matt and rounded all the corners. For the sentiment I applied heavy gel gloss medium with a palette knife to a teal paper scrap and when it was dry I laid over green and teal foil strips and ran it through the Minc on 3. I cut one edge of each foil strip with the guillotine to get a straight edge before foiling. I cut the foiled strip with a happy die from The Ton Bold general greeting word plate dies. The birthday is from Neat and Tangled Everyday circles Stamp set and is embossed in green on black cardboard. The happy was glued on the black cardboard and the corners were rounded. I popped it up with foam tape.
I am entering this card in the Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: Don’t be fooled, be foiled.
