A Bird and Flowers Card with Foiling Tutorial

Today, I am on the Unity blog with this project for Kit of the Month Monday.

Sentiment:  Just like flowers, some people brighten your day just by being there.

For this card, I accented with gold foil, using an adhesive pen, gold foil and a laminating machine.
I selected a few tiny areas to shine with this technique.

The foil will shine when the light is just right, and then other times it will not be as shiny.  With movement it sparkles.  Here is a picture of it out of the direct light.  The gold is there, just so difficult to photograph.

Here is a quick tip video of this foiling process:

  2. Love this card and technique. I purchased a laminator a few weeks ago and haven't had the time to use it yet. Can't wait to try it out.
