Simon Says Stamp - DIAMOND CIRCLES Friendship Card


Red embossed Christmas Card with All The Joy sentiment.

Hello Lovelies! Foiling used to scare me and though I have (mostly) figured it out, I usually plan ahead and do foiling in batches. However, Simon Says Stamp Foiling Cards allow me to apply foil so easily, that I can do it as part of my regular card-making process.


In the recent Celebrate Release, we got both pattern and sentiment Foiling Cards and today's project will use the Diamond Circles Background for a Friendship or Sweetheart Card, depending on how you look at it.

CARD WALKTHROUGH


FOILING

  1. Turn on your heat laminator to warm it up.

  2. Trim your piece of Gold Foil roughly to the size of the Diamond Circles Foiling Card.

  3. Tape the edges of your foil (pretty side up) over the black pattern on the Foiling Card.

  4. Insert the card with foil attached into the laminator and let it pass through the heated rollers.

  5. Peel away the gold foil from the card to reveal the foiled design.



 

INK-BLENDING

  1. Gather your favorite large blending brushes. If you are using Simon Says Stamp, I suggest the Cheeky, Grapefruit and Citrine Brushes or 4 of the large Rainbow Splash Blending Brushes

  2. Starting with the Squeezed Lemon, apply color with a large blending brush to the foiled card.

  3. Continue with Scattered Straw, followed by Dried Marigold and Picked Raspberry.

  4. Trim to 4" x 5 1/4".



 

DIE-CUTTING

  1. Die-cut the Lace Heart using Gold Matte Cardstock as shown.

  2. Die-cut the "Hello" sentiment out of black cardstock and the outline out of white cardstock. Layer and adhere with craft glue.

  3. Die-cut the smaller Whirl Butterfly out of black cardstock. (I thought about painting the wings with a little gold paint and then changed my mind)




 

FINISHING

  1. Adhere the gold lace heart as shown and trim the access.

  2. Adhere the butterfly and heart with craft glue.

  3. Pop up the hello sentiment with foam dots and adhere to the card front.

  4. Pop up the Diamond Circles card front with foam tape and adhere to a black card base.

  5. Adhere the yellow jewels.



 


It's almost unfair that you get to combine ink-blending and foiling; both so individually beautiful and delightful when they come together!



Just a few selected die-cuts finishes this shimmery card.



A little foiling goes a long way in making this sweet card.
