How I Made It
Foiling with Dies + Simon's DieCember® Blog Hop!

Foiling with dies is so easy, and tons of fun! It’s a die technique that I’ve always enjoyed creating with; you can see more hot foil inspiration here.

The first card I made features the lovely, Skating Girl die. I foiled her with a matte silver, and decorated the card with snowflakes from Simon’s Stitched Flakes die set. The sentiment is from the Love You CZ Design die set, and I layered the new Holiday Knit Background behind this classy scene for a bit of texture.

The second card features the gorgeous, Tree Frame die. This one also features matte silver foil; this time on a Sea Glass cardstock square, for that soft and subtle feel.

For the greeting, I die cut silver letters with the new Rounded Alphabet set; the complementing sentiment is heat embossed using the Tiny Words Christmas stamp set. I further embellished the card with Stitched Flakes glitter die cuts, and silver jewels. The sparkly finish of this card makes it so delicate and elegant!
