Holiday Card Series 2016 – Day 12 (DIY Foil + stamping)

Hello all! Today’s post and video are Day 12 of the Holiday Card Series.

For today’s card, I wanted to use one of my new DIY foil designs available in my shop. In fact, I updated my shop with five new designs! (You can get all five as a bundle and save some cash, too)…

Anyhow, I wanted to combine the DIY foil design with stamping and watercoloring.

After foiling the Merry Christmas (Delicate Version) design with Heidi Swapp Gold Foil (see this video for how I did that), I stamped images from the Winter Flowers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp in VersaMark ink. I applied white embossing powder and melted it until smooth. This creates the perfect resist for watercoloring over the top.

I knew I would be using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, so I created the card out of Bristol Paper. So after the heat embossing was done, I painted the flowers using the Zig markers and a small Pentel Aquash Brush.

It’s a pretty simple design, but still customized and artistic-looking. I love how it turned out. :)
