I have just purchased a new hot foil machine so of course I had to try it out and yes I am much happier with this machine. I really love the border hot foil plates from the Amazing Paper Grace Delicate Impressions collection by Becca Feeken. The Amazing Paper Grace Diamonetta Background Hot Foil Plate creates the perfect background to add some gorgeous fussy cut coloured flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Blooms Border Hot Foil Plate. Add these to a very pretty decorative floral border and a ‘heartfelt’ sentiment and the card is complete.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
For my card I have cut a piece of cardstock 6 3/4″ x 8″ and scored at 5″ along the long side leave a front flap of 3″. I die cut the decorative floral border from the Amazing Paper Grace Graceful Floral Border Dies out of white cardstock and adhered the side under the front flap. I cut a piece of white cardstock 6 3/4″ x 2 7/8″ and adhered it to the underside of the front flap hiding the end of the decorative border. I then cut a piece of gold cardstock 2″ x 6 3/4″ and adhered it to the right side of the inside back of the card. I cut a piece of gold cardstock 6 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ and adhered it to the front flap. I cut a piece of white foil friendly paper 6 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ and foiled it with with Amazing Paper Grace Diamonetta Background Hot Foil Plate with gold foil. This was then applied over the gold panel on the flap. To finish the panel I die cut decorative edges out of gold cardstock using the Amazing Paper Grace Graceful Floral Lace dies and adhered them to the panel to add a decorative finish to the panel.
I hot foiled the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Blooms Border Hot Foil Plate onto Hammermill white cardstock with gold foil. I then coloured the flowers and leaves with Copic markers and fussy cut the images out. These were then added over the diamond background within the border as shown.
To finish the card I hot foiled the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Heartfelt Sentiments in gold foil on white cardstock and diecut it with the coordinating die. I also die cut two plain sentiment dies from white cardstock and stacked all three dies together with the foiled sentiment on top. This was then added to the front of the decorated panel on the card.
