Foiled again...

Hi everyone,

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'.

Challenge 22

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.
