I used a little rectangle of my newest Recollections foil 12x12 I bought at M's. Here I'm using a second one purchased the same day. For Virginia's View Challenge #9:
The foil paper looks like Jack Frost himself designed it... the combination of metals is accomplished using Ranger Fine Gold EP, and little PTI sentiment, and the dots embossed on the card base. I was amazed how beautifully the foil took the Versa Mark for embossing... slippery though, use a gentle touch with your stamp! Those gorgeous [truly] metal snowflakes, by Momenta, are a few I've had for years in a pack of twelve... definitely only for hand-delivered cards.
Sorry about the enabling, Virginia! =]
On a side-note, I had a delightful chat with Bev this morning... sharing a little something I created after seeing it in the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking - Holiday Cards & more Volume 9 - I won it on Moxie Fab World!! Way in the back are very cool things to make to display ones cards. I really wish they had given credit to the designers as I'd love to give them creative due. Here is my take on just one - so you all know, the book was The Agony and the Ecstasy - all ecstasy for me:
I love it!! working on a second one as I chatted with Bev... thanks for the early birthday call, Bev!
