one of the things I love most about hot foiling is being able to hot foil on colored card stock. I used Gina K Designs Blue Denim card stock for my butterflies with Thermoweb copper hot foil. I hot foiled the floral using Thermoweb silver and ink blended with the coordinating stencil in cool blues. The sentiment is hot foiled using Thermoweb gold. I love mixing metal foils on a simple card for unexpected interest.

I knew I just had to have this suite of products from Pinkfresh Studio. I hot foiled the floral with Thermoweb Copper hot foil and ink blended with warm yellow and coral inks. The Sentiment is Thermoweb gold hot foil.
After ink blending and die cutting two florals I placed them on white card stock that was slightly bigger than my blanket stitch die. I used Thermoweb dot runner to hold the florals and then die cut everything together so the stitch is on both the background and florals. I used a cut off floral and adhered it to the right top corner to complete the background. I added lots of Pinkfresh Studio glitter drops in butterscotch. This is a retirement card for a customer I need today for a luncheon, I hope he likes it.
You cannot go wrong with rainbows and the Rainbow Dreams hot foil by Thermoweb is perfection. It has a gorgeous sparkle effect I’ve not seen anywhere else. I used hot plates by Erin Lee Creative for all these projects. In January I try to make lots of birthday cards and these are very clean and simple easy projects to mass produce. Just grab some of you hot foil plates and create a bunch of backgrounds and sentiments. die cut with your favorite nesting panels and boom you have a bunch of cards. One of my favorite things about hot foil is the perfect results you can achieve with the negative foil. All you need is the Pinkfresh Studio Solid Hot Foil Plate to create gorgeous panels that otherwise would be waste, it’s a two for one card and you use all that gorgeous foil.
I began by die cutting the largest ornament out of my favorite colored card stock from my stash, Gina K Designs Red Velvet, Taylored Expressions Basil and Bazzil dark Get and Spearmint. Then I used my Glimmer machine to hot foil using Thermoweb foils and Pinkfresh Studios background hot foil plates. Then I hot foiled Honey Bee Stamps holiday words and the coordinating dies. I embellished the ornaments with Honey Bees Holiday Bell using a mix of foil and glitter card stock. I added a Taylored Expressions large drop for the bell’s “clapper”. The pines are from Honey Bee’s Lovely Layers Pinecone
I just love how this card turned out and it was pretty simple to make. I started by hot foiling the Spellbinders snowflake hot foil plate with Therm O Web silver hot foil on Papertrey Ink light blue card stock . This is my favorite thing about hot foiling I love that I can add foil to any smooth colored card stock. Next I used Honey Bee Stamps Holiday hot foil sentiment and Therm O Web Pool Blue Hot foil on the same Papertrey Ink card stocks and then used the coordinating die to cut it out. The cute container is Honey Bee’s Vintage Picnic Basket and the foliage are the pines from the Honey Bee Lovely Layers Pinecone set. I popped the basket up with thin foam strips so the gift card could tuck behind. Below are some close up photos.
