Blog Hop Inspiration - Magnolia Dreams.


I recently got my Heidi Swapp Minc machine and so today my blog is all about my foiling madness. (grin)
 Here is the card:

 The gold foiling more clear....

I first created the background with Magnolia Dreams Border svg file. A bit about how I created the background...
I inserted the border svg file on word and reduced the size to about 13cm x 5cm. I then copy pasted it two more times to get a three strip border BG. I adjust the images so that I got a continuous image. I printed the same in a laser jet printer and foiled it with gold foil paper. I printed the sentiment and foiled it with red foil paper. The card base is 4" x 5.5". I trimmed the foiled sheet 1/8" smaller and mounted it with foam tape and the sentiment also. I printed a Magnolia flower on vellum sheet and foiled with gold foil. I tucked it below the sentiment with clear foam tape.

Stamp set used:
