I'd love to share a card I have made for this month's challenge over at the delightful Avery Elle Challenge Blog, which this time round, is 'Stripes'.
And here's my card...
So stripes are a pretty bold statement all on their own, but I thought, why not go all out and add some foil into the mix! Go bold or go home, right? So I kept the design really simple, and the stripes really, well, bold. I used various sizes of double sided tape to adhere my foil to my front panel, leaving a space along the centre in which to place my greeting. I stamped my sentiment, and a load of these cute stripey flowers and leaves, (what a coincidence :) ), from Avery Elle's, 'So Happy' set, and heat embossed in Gold Sparkle powder. I then cut all my pieces out, and adhered them to my front panel, adding a wee heat embossed heart to finish off. And, pretty much, that was that.
It's all about the foil at the moment, so I was really glad to give it a whirl. I'm not gonna lie, it can be tricky to work with, and marks really easy, but I kind of like the look that creates, and I love how unashamedly flamboyant foil is!
I really hope you like it and would love to read your thoughts, so please feel free to leave a comment.
See you next time.
