If you've never tried foiling now's your chance! There are new Toner Toppers Paper Packs from LDRS Creative in both 6x6 and 4x9 size with gorgeous, easy to foil patterns! I am head over heels for the Floral Toner Toppers - especially this bold pattern! All you need to add foiled goodness to the Toner Toppers is a toner reactive foil. You can find a whole RAINBOW of colors, but I decided to go with gold and keep to a more neutral color palette. I cut my paper from the Floral Toner Toppers 6x6 Paper Pack with the second die in the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set and then used my scissors to trim a piece of gold foil slightly larger than my background panel. I placed the foil pretty side up (silver side against the toner printed design) over the background and ran it through my laminator with a parchment paper carrier sheet.
I wanted to keep the elements on the front of my card simple since I had such a gorgeous, bold background. The Lovely Wildflower Cluster Die Set was just the thing I needed! I mentioned before that I wanted to keep to a neutral color palette, so I thought I would add a pop of black, but the die just wasn't standing out. I tried white and that was worse than just the black, so I decided to go back to an old trick and create a faux background for my die-cut. I cut the vine piece from the Lovely Wildflower Cluster Die Set once from white and twice from black and adhered the black pieces behind the white pieces and slightly offset them - one slightly left and one slightly right. This gives me a shadowed look without any fussy cutting! I adhered it to my background panel hanging off the right side and trimmed off the excess with my scissors.
I stamped a sentiment from the new Everyday Sayings Stamp Set with Raven Hybrid Ink and used the Everyday Sayings Coordinating Die Set to cut out the sentiment. The die set has two dies for each sentiment so that you can cut close to the sentiment and cut a shadow as well - LOVE THAT! I cut a shadow from black cardstock and added the sentiment with foam tape. I cut a panel of white cardstock with the largest die from the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set and adhered all of the pieces to a card base. And that's it! Be sure to watch my video above for lots of foiling tips and tricks. I'll see you soon!
