Fun with Foil

Hello, Ribbon Friends! I had a fun time playing with foiling over the weekend, and I wanted to share one of the results with you! 
The type of foiling I used for my card is called "transfer foil" and is accomplished by first heat embossing the sentiment with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. Once the sentiment was embossed, I placed a sheet of foil over the top of the cardstock and passed the "sandwich" through a hot laminating machine. Presto! Chango! A foiled sentiment
Because the foil is so shiny, it is very hard to get a good photograph! If you are familiar with heat embossing with gold powder, you will be able to see that the foil is quite a bit smoother and shinier than embossing powder. 
To make sure I was keeping the shine going, I used Glitz Ribbon and Metallic String to finish off the card. The card is a standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" made from black cardstock. I lined the inside with white cardstock to give a place to stamp or write a message. 
I wrapped a piece of the purple Glitz Ribbon around the bottom of the card and added a loopy bow made from the gold Metallic String to the left edge. I created a flower cluster with some purple, blue, and yellow flowers.
I placed a few glitter enamel dots around here and there. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
