Make Your Monsters Shine

September 28, 2015

I've had a brief love affair with foil, and today's card reflects those few passionate (and frustrating moments). It was a brief affair mainly because I bought a cheap laminator and the foil didn't stick down properly on my printed patterns, so it wasn't joy to use. Despite all of that, I think this card featuring the monster clear stamps turned out pretty neat.



If you don't have foil or a foiling machine, you can achieve a similar look with Gilding Flakes. I've used them often with stamped images and the results are just lovely. No need for a laminator, hot iron, or laser printer. You can simply stamp a pattern with glue and apply your flakes ‚ÄĒ and voila.

As you can see, I kept the card design very simple and basic to really have the shimmer of the foil take center stage and draw the focus to the monster in the middle. The sentiment, stamped in pigment ink, matches the overall color scheme and is a nice change from my standard black sentiments.


Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed the project!
