Sparkling Saturdays: Foil Edition Take 1



Welcome back to another Sparkling Saturday! Today's post will feature a card made with foil as I am madly in love with it right now. It adds such an elegant touch to a simple card. The two cards I am showing you today were made for two friends of mine that recently graduated from medicine and beginning their journey as doctors. I was a little rushed getting them finished, so please excuse the pictures I took of these cards in the car.

Both these cards were made using Doctors Rule stamp set from Altenew. I love all the images and sentiments it comes with and many of them will be used in both these cards. For the first card, I used Tsukineko Ultimate Metallic Gold to make a background using the sentiment 'Congrats Doc'. Next, I stamped out the heart and colored it in using Copics and fussy cut it out. To finish, I adhered the background onto black cardstock and popped up the heart using foam squares. I cut a strip of black to stamp on my sentiment, cut a little fishtail on one side, and stuck it all down to white card base, and voilĂ ! Card 1 was done.

For my next card, I decided to centre it around the Hippocratic Oath that doctors need to take when they graduate. I made my own word cloud using Wordle, and fussed around with it until I got it the way I wanted it. Next, I printed the word cloud out on white cardstock and cut it out. While I was doing all this, my laminator was warming up so it was ready to go!  I used gold iCraft Deco Foil and placed the gold side up on top of my printed word cloud. I ran it through the laminator twice and peeled the foil piece up and TADAA! Isn't it so pretty? I'm loving the way this turned out! To finish off this card, I used SSS Fog ink to stamp on the stethoscope and hearts to make a background. I adhered this to black cardstock and then onto a white card base.


To end this post, I'm sharing with you the sentiments that I stamped on the inside. The script of the congrats is super elegant, and the other sentiment is just too awesome.
