It's time to give you a pretty little nudge to remind you to join us at the CAS Mix Up Challenge!! If you've already joined us, why not make another? The CAS Mix Up team made a second round of gorgeous foiled cards - you can find them all here.
We're foiling in October - and I had a second round of success, yay! This time I tried foiling a sheet of paper with double sided sticky paper AND a piece of designer paper from EH made for foiling, as the design is printed with foil-friendly toner ink!
stamped sentiment + foiled paper two ways + die cut
Here's how it came together:
- Apply a double sided sticky sheet to a piece of heavy cardstock [I used Neenah 110#] remove one backer, top with a sheet of silver foil, run through Minc machine
- Cut the sentiment from that foiled piece
- Cut a rectangle from a quarter sheet of designer toner paper with an MFT Wonky Rectangle
- foil with aqua foil
Stamplorations Cutplorations die
Elizabeth Crafts double-sided 8.5x11 inch adhesive sheets
MFT Wonky stitched rectangle
Teensy sentiment from Reverse Confetti's Triangle Trees
Gorgeous Christmas card Michele. Love your design! I didn't know there was paper out there that's all ready for foiling. How cool is that??!! Thanks so much for being our Guest Designer at CAS Mix Up this month! xx
What a clean impressive beauty. I love the use of foiling both on the word die and the snowflake dots. The twine and simple font sentiment just add to this stunning Christmas card. Thank you so much for being our very special guest at CAS Mix Up! xxx
This is so elegant, Michele! Love the aqua foil dotted background and the gorgeous Joyeux Noel. That delicate bow is delightful and the embossed stamped sentiment is the perfect finishing touch! Thanks so much for joining our team this month! xoxo

Lovely, Michele! I agree, foiling sure adds some magic to a card. I'm so happy for you to be having great success with it! Crafty hugs!
I'm glad you finally got that machine to work for you, Michele. This is so beautiful with the aqua dots in the background and the large die cut foiled sentiment.
Gorgeous designed card. I gotta know...did you make two? Or is the foiling reflecting room colors? The first one looks all rose gold and the second silver and aqua. Either way these are GORGEOUS.
Gorgeous foiled design, beautifully CAS. I like the idea of the paper ready for foiling, need to check that out! Thank you so much for being a fabulous GD this month xx
Beautiful! I don't do enough foiling. So many ideas.....
Nailed it! Super foil colors...CAS and snowy. Perfect for NOEL.
Beautiful, and thanks for the tips! I'm also in love with your mini aqua dots!
Oh, the love / hate relationship with foiling... LOVE it / HATE photograhing it lol. Fabulous work my friend!
Wow what a unique and glamorous card. The foiling looks amazing and both techniques look wonderful x. Such a striking and beautiful card and congratulations again on guesting x.
What a stunning and elegant CAS card, Michele!
Love the shiny aqua dotted background. It looks like falling snow. The combination of the bold silver foiled sentiment and the delicate silver thread/bow is fantastic.
