Foil, Vellum & "Irresistibly Yours" Specialty DSP

There's something a little more classy and elegant when using foil cardstock on a project. Not long ago I created a Valentine Card using Strawberry Slush and Silver, but today's is with gold foil! Also, for today's project, I used the Sale-a-bration "Irresistibly Yours" specialty DSP. Love using the paper!

I created two cards that are basically the same, but using a few different elements. (Forgive the lighting. My usual light source couldn't be used and I had to use my window sill on a cloudy day.)
So I will show you one today, and the other tomorrow.

Another product I like to use is vellum. for this card I heat embossed with gold one of the flowers from the "Flower Shop" stamp set and then used my Strawberry Slush ink pad and an Ink Dauber to colour the flower from behind. Love that soft colour look!

In this next one you can see a peek at the layers inside the card to create a pink & gold border.

Next, you can see all the layering.

With the piece of "Irresistibly Yours" specialty DSP, I went from dark to light at a curve sponging with Strawberry Slush, and then with a piece of paper towel wiping of the excess ink and reveal the white leaves of the paper.

Here is a Stampin' Up video on all the ways you can use the "Irresistibly Yours" specialty DSP.

To see what I all used in the making of this card, check below. Have fun making yours!

Happy Stamping!

Hi Sabrina, another beautiful card. Loved the gold embossed flowers and then the soft colour behind. (I never would have thought of colouring behind).
