Distressed Foil Technique and MY Upcoming Stamp Closet Sale….

final-21

Hi all!   I forgot to post this card back in January.  It was a pretty card I stamped with some friends when I went back to Florida.  My favorite thing is to “mattify” the silver foil card stock to create a brushed nickel or distressed metal look.

I find that holding the die cut dragonflies in my hand and gently rubbing with a fine grit sanding block is the best way to keep them in one piece.   We used to sell the sanding blocks but now I get them at Sally’s Beauty supply in the nail section.

I used the Stitched circle die to cut a 3″ circle, leaving a flat edge for the side of the card.

I love the Dragonfly Bundle!  Great selection of greetings and pretty font and the bee is nice, too.  (anytime they are not buzzing near me is great:)

See my full supply list at the bottom of the post if you want to add the dragonflies to your own collection.  Remember it’s still Sale a Bration until the end of March…free gift with $50 purchase!  Click here and here to see both brochures of freebies!


Time for some Spring Cleaning!
