Foiled backgrounds | 3 cards

Hi! Today I am having fun with foil. I created 3 foiled backgrounds and then turned them into cards. Foiled backgrounds make an interesting background and since you have all tha shine there you really don’t have to do a lot with your focal points. It always take your cards into the next level.

    Love the foil! My favorite is the floral design, but the waves are great as well.
    I just received my foiling system, but am a little intimidated with the process. You made it look easy, so I think I will dive in and give it a try.

    I have been a bit intimidated with my foiling machine – but you inspire me to get it out and get busy. Love all the cards you showcased today.

    Great cards Vicki, love foil. I have had no experience with it yet and I don’t know if I could afford the heating platform but there is foil out there that you only need a sticky surface, so I am now going to try that, thank you for inspiration Vicki. Have a lovely day. Stay well.

    I just love your cards! I have the Glimmer Hot Foil system but I have trouble getting good results. Whenever you use this in a video you inspire me to give it another try. Perhaps I just need more practice. Thanks for the inspiration Vicky!

    I learned so much about my Glimmer Foil system,, which I rarely use because I have bad luck with it. I never thought of using Washi Tape to hold the pieces exactly where I want them. Now I have lots of time with this pandemic going on to try my Glimmer Foil system again!
