For my cards today I used products from the Yana’s Blooms Collection – Geo Foliage, Magnolia Bouquet and Yana’s Layered Script.
Included in the Geo Foliage Hot Foil set is two pieces of hot foil plates, that produce “random streaks”, which is an inaccurate way to describe them I know, but I can’t think of a better word, but such as you’d see in a piece of marble. And because that’s what they made me think of, that’s how I chose to use them – hot foiling onto a piece of watercolor paper, and then using watercolor paint to complete the suggestion of marble. Alternately, those plates can be used to create gnarly branches for leafy branches; that’s undoubtedly what the intended purpose was, but who doesn’t love multi-purpose supplies?!
I hot foiled the “streaks” across the card panel with Silver Glimmer foil for the grey card and with Blush Glimmer Foil for the copper colored card. I used Mijello Mission Gold Paints to paint each of the card panels, then set them aside to dry.
I used the same Silver Glimmer Foil to hot foil the collection of leaves and blooms in the Magnolia Bouquet set and die cut them with the coordinating dies.
I also die cut the “thanks” sentiment from silver foil cardstock and the shadow die cut from plain gray cardstock. Also included in the Geo Foliage Foil Plates is a fun elongated/stretched hexagon plate that I foiled with more of the silver glimmer foil, then die cut and cut in half. I used that half-hex shape as the base form my greeting and a small arrangement of silver foil outlined flowers and leaves.
For my second card, I used more Blush Glimmer Foil to create the leaf die cuts and the outline of the stretched hexagon. I die cut an extra layer of cardstock for the “happy” part of the greeting and layered it up over the “birthday” die cut to create more dimension for the greeting.
The hot foil marbleizing is subtle on both cards until you tilt them in the light and then you see their beguiling WOW-factor!
