Hello, Bazzill friends! This is Jennifer Ingle here with you today! I have a SHINY card and tag to share with you! This week we are celebrating FOIL in our paper crafts and I am loving it! I love that a little goes such a long way when it comes to gorgeous foil designs! And Bazzill takes all the work out of it by offering a fantastic selection of foil cardstock options! Woot! Woot!
I created this super fun and SUPER shiny card and tag set using Bazzill Basics Marshmallow Card Shoppe as my base, a bit of stamping, and then I used Bazzill foam and foil to create the focal point gem stones! It is so easy to get this great, shiny, dimensional look!
The Bazzill Basics Self-Adhesive foam is brilliant to achieve great dimension with die cut elements. I layered a sheet of adhesive on the non-sticky side and left the backing papers on both sides. I then die cut my diamond shape creating a double sided sticky foam cut. I carefully peeled off the backing paper on one side, die cut the diamond again from the GORGEOUS Hot Pink Foil Board and placed the foil cut on the sticky foam cut, leaving the negative space pieces in place. This makes it super easy to punch out those pieces you don’t need and keeps the shape from bending while you are trying to line it up. It’s a great way to get perfect alignment every time! I did this twice, once for my card, and once for my tag.
For the card, I random stamped a fabulous gem image from Winnie & Walter to create a black and white background and then added a simple sentiment banner. To keep the tag simple, I chose to skip the stamped background and simply stamped the same sentiment directly on the tag. This would look SO fabulous on a gift bag presented with this card! A bit of May Arts silver string lends just a bit more sparkle to the design! SO fun!
I hope you are inspired to play with some FOILTASTIC goodies!
Have a Happy!
