ID: MC July/14 - Embossed Foil - Just For You card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: July 17, 2014

I had a play morning with my friend... She brought me a big pile of Somerset Studio magazines that a friend of her's gave her... She said pick a mag and pic a page to try. So I closed my ees and came up with Sept/Oct 2003 page 24 - Embossed Metal Foil Prints. The copper piece is one part of the technique.

I'm also using a sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design

Basically the technique is: adhere foil tape to a piece of cardstock, run through an embossing machine, color with Colorbox Chalk pads, Wipe off color from high points, run through the machine sandwiched between clean pieces of cardstock (to make a print) and to flatten the embossing.

I side folded my dark green textured cardstock. adhered a piece of green Ruche cardstock, then a dark green Sari ribbon, then my foil piece.

Punched out a 1" circle from the print I made from the foil embossing (hard to see the print...) Adhered a textured button.

Stamped the "Just for You" using Versafine Toffee and embossing with Copper embossing powder.

Wasn't happy with the dark green background, so cut around it leaving a 1/16" border all around the edge and adhered a mottled light green cardstock.

Added a few small punched out circles and the green horizontal bar.
