Hi there and welcome! Seeka here and today I’m sharing a card featuring a background made by foiling the Dazzle Layer A cover plate. Foiling with dies is a wonderful way to stretch your supplies!

I started by prepping my foiling machine. I centered the Dazzle Layer A die over a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of plum cardstock and then flipped the two upside down, together, and placed them onto the heating platform. I used a piece of Post-it Tape to tape the cardstock panel down at one end, creating a hinge, and then I swung the panel up and placed a piece of gold foil over the die, shiny side down. I replaced the plum cardstock panel and then followed the instructions for my foiling machine to foil the panel. Below is an example of the order and orientation of the die, foil, and ink-blended panel on the heating plate (when I went to actually foil, I aligned all these pieces, as described above).

With the foiling done, I started on the sentiment. I die cut the detail layer of the Big Hello Sugar Script die set from gold cardstock and the shadow layer from the same plum cardstock as the background. I glued the two together and then used foam tape to adhere the sentiment to the background. I also added a smaller sentiment from my stash. To finish, I adhered the card front to a card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
