5 background techniques for big sentiments | Hot foiling

Hi! Today I have a fun video where I am creating 5 backgrounds with different techniques. These backgrounds are perfect for adding big sentiments that work as focal points. Use them with big sentiment stamps, with big die cut words or like I did with foiling!

    I love the look of foiling, but can’t afford the machine. Can you show other techniques for using foil?

    These cards are absolutely beautiful!! I would have assumed the yupo would not like the heat of the foiling system!! I really like the font of these sentiments. Since I don’t have a foiling system, I really appreciate watching you create some different backgrounds and share ideas on how to keep the rest of the card simple and let the background stand out. I was thinking the other day that since it’s summer soon you will be taking a break from posting videos soon to spend time with family/friends at the beach. I’m already missing you! Mostly, Vicky, thank you for this video. It has been a difficult week for me with all that is happening here in the USA. I love your videos and watching you create and so this video in particular is very much appreciated. Thank you so very much. Enjoy the beautiful weather over there and your ability to get outside again!!

    Gorgeous cards Vicky and although I don’t have a foiling machine and not intended to purchase one, I found the tutorial video great. Beautiful backgrounds and I will try some that’s for sure.
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful week.
