I just love this free paper pack that you can get during Sale-a-bration. Not only is it foiled, it is a heavier cardstock which is great if you make gift boxes. But, what I want to show you is this:
I’ve trimmed down a sheet to make a card and as you can see, hopefully, the cardstock has a sheen as well as the foiling. This makes it ideal to stepping it up a notch.
You need to use one of your, preferably still juicy, ink pads and gently swipe it over the card. Here I have used dapper denim.
Once you have swiped, give the excess ink a wipe off – I simply used some paper towel. Then, just swipe and repeat until you are happy with your newly coloured piece of foiled paper.
To finish off my card, I have used some of the corduroy ribbon, a pice of uninked cardstock (from the sheet I inked). The stamp is from the lots of happy card making project kit. I’ve mounted the card onto white cardstock, matted with some tranquil tide.
