Today I have combined three of my favourite techniques – flower making, die cutting and hot foiling in this anniversary card. I have been toying with an idea about hot foiling on acetate and finally managed to do a card with this idea. I still have other others in my head with hot foiling on acetate so watch this space… I have made a beautiful panel embossing rose coloured pearl card and hot foiling acetate with the same plate using the Amazing Paper Grace Diamonetta Background Hot Foil Plate and I was very pleased with how this card turned out. Add some beautiful borders from the Amazing Paper Grace Graceful Brackets and hand made Layered Cherry Blossoms finished with a very elegant hot foiled sentiment and the card is so elegant and very pretty
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
For my card I have created a top folding 6″ x 6″ card base out of white cardstock. I layered the front with gold and Rose Glow card. I scored double lines down each side of the Rose Gold card to create some interest in the background.
I cut a piece of Rose Glow card 2 1/2″ x 5 3/4″ and embossed it with the Diamonetta Background Hot Foil Plate and added it across the front the card in the centre. I then hot foiled a piece of acetate 3″ x 5 3/4″ using the same hot plate in gold foil and adhered it over the embossed panel with double sided tape.
I die cut two background borders out of gold cardstock and two decorative borders out of Ivory cardstock using the dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Graceful Brackets. I adhered the decorative borders over the gold background slightly offsetting the dies to show some gold. These were then added either side of the centre panel. I die cut two scallop borders from the Amazing Paper Grace Graceful Brackets dies out of gold cardstock and adhered them to the borders as shown.
I hot foiled the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Occasions Sentiment Hot Foil Plate and Die in gold foil and die cut it with the coordinating die. I also die cut three plain dies and stacked them together and added the foil sentiment on top. This was then placed in the centre of the decorative panel.
I die cut the flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Cherry dies and coloured them and assembled them. These were adhered to the right and left of the sentiment. I die cut the leaves from green cardstock and added them around the flowers.
To finish I added clear Wink of Stella to the flowers and gold pearls to the centres of the lattice and to the centres of the flowers.
