Glamorous Hot Foiling, Die Cutting, and Stenciling for a Love Card!

The new release of Simon Says Stamp’s Kisses Collection is GORGEOUS! I made a very “glamorous” card using many of the new products in the release (as well as the corresponding Hugs release), including a Love Two Ways hot foil plate, Candy Hearts layering stencil set, and the beautiful Rich Red Matte Metallic Cardstock!

I really love the hot foil I used for this card; it is brand new from Therm O Web and this was the Orchid color of foil. It looks great foiled with that Love Two Ways plate! It paired beautifully with the Rich Red Matte Metallic Cardstock, which I cut with Simon’s Fiddly Leaf die.

The Candy Hearts layering stencil set was ink blended with Simon’s Pawsitively Saturated Ink; all the colors I used are linked below in the supply list.
